I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (yep – I'm a Steelers fan, but I've warmed up to the Vikings) and I graduated from Point Park University in 2012. I've been part of CBS Radio in Pittsburgh, Studstill Media in Illinois and now call the Med City home! My husband, Will, and I enjoy Rochester’s craft beers and wine, hiking, and city/country balance. I have a cat named Pantera – an adorable, long-haired black cat with green eyes! If you want to talk cats (or any animal really), hiking, movies, concerts, or pizza, I'm your girl!
