ON AIR: WJVL fill-in host; Sundays Noon-6 on Iron Country

Milton, WI. Born and raised!

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN RADIO? I was in high school, and our long-time family friend, Bruce Slater was working. I told him I thought it would be sooo cool to be on the radio. He introduced me to Ken Scott at Beloit Riverfest. I helped out at the fair that year and went in with Bruce every Saturday night for three months. He taught me so much about radio! I remember my first “pay” from the radio station was a meet and greet with Kenny Chesney at the fair on the last day in 2000! I was the youngest by a few years, and even needed to get a work permit to work at WJVL!

HOBBIES: Hanging out with my kiddos, family, and friends. I love sports (Packers, Badgers, and Brewers!), catching any kind of live music that I can, and of course random dance parties with my daughters!

FAVORITE COUNTRY ARTIST: Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church.. Can I just say all of them!? I can’t pick just one!

WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING IF YOU WEREN’T IN RADIO? Well, radio has always been my “fun job”. I work full-time for an insurance office. I’ve actually been a licensed insurance agent for eight years, and love that! I’d love to open my own agency someday!
