I'm a 1996 graduate of St. Cloud State University, and have been with WJON for over 21 years as a news reporter and anchor. While news is my business, sports are my love. I am a big fan of the Vikings, Twins, Gopher's basketball, the Wolves, Wild and St. Cloud State Hockey. My favorite pastimes include snowmobiling, golfing and movies.
