I’m one of the newest members to the team and very excited to be a part of the Sioux City lifestyle!
I made the short move down from Vermillion, South Dakota after graduating from the University of South Dakota with a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Marketing and Media with a minor in journalism. Graduating in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic was a unique challenge, but I consider myself lucky to become a part of this great news team.
I was born and raised in Mitchell, South Dakota where I developed my passion for storytelling. As a kid, I always knew I wanted to be on TV or radio in some facet. I was fortunate enough to begin my broadcasting career at our local radio station, KMIT-FM, while in high school as I was an on-air announcer and commentated play-by-play for area sports coverage. If you’re ever passing through during basketball season, I’d highly recommend stopping at the Corn Palace to take in a game; it is a one-of-a-kind experience! I’m so grateful for all the invaluable mentoring I received from numerous talented professionals at the station before leaving for college.
During my final semester at USD is when I really gained an understanding and love for field reporting. As a reporter for our campus news station, KYOT-TV, I covered everything from club rugby to Pride Night at a popular pub downtown. When I’m not out and about reporting, I enjoy hanging out with my fiancé Alli at home, golfing, watching sports, and traveling with friends.
Most of all, I’m excited to bring the viewers at home the stories that truly affect their everyday lives, and to make those who’ve offered their help and support proud along the way.
