I grew up in Albert Lea, and made my way to Owatonna about 20 years ago. I love Southern Minnesota and have no plans to leave the area. I have 2 daughters; my oldest works here in town and my youngest is in middle school. I am involved with Owatonna Area Special Olympics as a coach and a member of the management team. When I was younger I thought being on the radio was such an awesome job, and I am so happy that I am able to work here.
