I started my career in broadcast at a small Public Radio station in 2003 and it grew from there. I came to Idaho from a tiny town in New Mexico in 2007 to work for a Twin Falls TV station. I did that for several years and got to know southern Idaho meeting all types of people. In 2012 I joined Townsquare Media as the morning host and anchor of AM Idaho and I serves as the news director. I enjoy the great outdoors of Idaho from the top of mountain peaks to the lower levels of area canyons. I am happy to call southern Idaho my home.
