I was born in the small town of Valley City North Dakota on December 21,1986. I moved to Oregon in 1994 when I was seven years old. I graduated from Cottage Grove High School in 2005. I came to KNND in 2003 as an intern in the news department. My eight week internship served to reinforce my conviction that I wanted a career in radio. After graduation, I was hired in 2005 and have been working at the radio station since. I have numerous duties at KNND, among them local news producer, host of Thursday's Round Up Classic Country and Western Hoedown from 11 am to 3 pm. I host the Beeper Show, the longest running radio talk show program in Oregon, each weekday morning from 9-10 am (except for Thursdays), which is followed by the ever popular Swap and Shop show M-F from 10-11 am. In June of 2013, I became the proud owner of KNND and I love the opportunity to carry on the tradition of service that has been the hallmark of KNND.
