I was born and raised in Fargo, ND (yah, you betcha, uffda!) Originally interested in meteorology, I got hooked on radio when I started at my college radio station at North Dakota State University. My dad used to be amazed how I found a way to make a career using my “gift of gab.”

My radio journey led from Fargo, to St. Cloud, MN, to Minneapolis, to Orlando, FL and finally Kansas City.

As with radio, I began my journey of faith in college. That was when I first realized my need of a savior and gave my life to Jesus.

I am a single mother of 3, all were born within 4 years! So life with them has felt like a whirlwind. I never imagined being a solo parent, but it has afforded me a front row seat to experience God’s faithfulness in ways I could never have imagined.

As we grow, we quickly realize that life is not always up and to the right like we may have imagined in our teen and young adult years. But through every twist and turn we can KNOW we are not alone and we ARE loved. I am passionate about sharing God’s love and mercy and grace and peace and strength and humbled to do it together each afternoon on Life 88.5.
