My life started in Joplin, Missouri where I born in 1986. As an only child I was a little on the spoiled side during my youth, but very much loved by mom, dad, step-mom and, of course, my grandmother who helped to raise me while mom worked to provide everything that she could for me. My family is my rock.
I grew up a few miles away from KSNF & KODE in Carl Junction, where I was voted Student Council President my senior year. But one class I loved more than any other throughout high school: Video Productions.
After high school, I attended Pittsburg State University, and graduated in 2010 with a degree in Communications and an emphasis in broadcast journalism.
Today, I’m employed at the television station I began my first job with, and can’t picture myself working in any other field.
Away from work, my animals “Tigger” and “Lil’ Bub” bring joy into my home. I also have a love for flying; so, in my spare time, I break out Flight Simulator on the computer, and “jump into the cockpit” of a Boeing 737!
If there’s ever a story idea you would like to send my way, feel free to e-mail me: email@example.com, or contact me at the tv station by calling my direct line: (417) 625-0273. I’m also happy to answer any questions you may have about the stories I publish to fourstateshomepage.com!
