Graduate of UW-Platteville
One aspect of my job I’ve always enjoyed is learning more about what is happening in the community. Whether that is talking with local elected officials or meeting with area non-profit organizations. Outside of the radio station, I also volunteer with the Grant County Tourism Council.
Those opportunities have shown me how unique the tri-states and give me a greater appreciation for the people who make things happen in our corner of the world.
When not on the job, I enjoy cooking, reading, writing, trivia events, dad jokes, board games, card games, and fishing.
