I am a Wyoming girl through-and-through! My mom was a rodeo queen and country singer from Douglas, and my dad is a coal miner in Campbell County. I grew up in Wright, Wyoming with a love for Speech and Debate and Theater. I'm also a former print journalist, and I jumped into radio feet-first. I like to spend my free time taking hikes in the Snowy Range Mountains with my dog, Seger, and roller skating through life by playing roller derby and hitting the skate park.
