What did you do before you were a Miner?

I think I’ve always been sort of a Miner! My love for local television began when I was just a young girl. I used to always ask my parents to turn on the news. Before joining Media Minefield, I was a Digital Journalist for 7 years, most recently in St. Louis and prior to that in Minneapolis. I’m happy to be back home. I’m a graduate of St. Cloud State University and proud Minnesotan.

What are three things people don’t know about you?

+ I was a competitive cheerleader for 10 years.

+ I’m left handed.

+ I worked at Texas Roadhouse for 3.5 years in college. Pro tip: Ask for ranch with the fresh baked bread.

If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one food, what would it be?

Jucy Lucy from Matt’s!

Guilty pleasure?

Reality TV! Currently watching: “90 Day Fiancé,” “Married at First Sight,” “Marrying Millions”

What are your favorite quotes?
