I started my radio career just 4 short weeks ago! I did do some internet radio under the moniker “Yankee Girl.” I am originally from the northeast (Middletown, CT) but landed here in Williston by way of Lafayette, LA having married my “Louisiana boy,” Kent seven years ago. Kent’s longstanding career in the oil and gas industry brought us to the Bakken region, and I couldn’t be happier. Although I am new to the radio industry, I do bring a long performing arts background to the table (I hold a B.F.A. in Drama from NYU), and I am a former high school English teacher of 16 years, skills I hope will add some additional “spice” to my work as your Trading Post Host, and will get you home informed during the Mon-Dak Afternoon News!

I started my radio career in the fall of 1995 working at KEYZ. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to do this great job and work with outstanding talent. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t look forward to coming to work! Thank you for listening, and for letting me be a small part of your day!
