I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but have since been transplanted to Kearney, thanks to my husband, Bryce. We met while attending UNK, and ended up settling here in town. We’re also excited for this coming summer, as we’re expecting a set of twins, due in late June or early July 2015!
Growing up, I participated in everything fine arts – from band, to choir, to theater. (Yes, I play several instruments, including piano, French horn, mallet percussion, a little guitar, and I sing.) I earned a Music Business degree at UNK, but when I graduated during the recession, arts jobs were few and far between. So I took a position at NTV News, and have been there for the past 7 years in various roles. (Yes, that’s where I met Leslie Means!)
In my free time, I still love anything music, especially finding new songs and artists. But my other big passion is food! As my husband can tell you, I’m obsessed with the Food Network (I’ll even watch episodes I’ve seen already.) He’s often my guinea pig for new recipes – but he doesn’t seem to mind, as long as he gets fed! I’m excited to share some of those recipes with all of you, and I hope you enjoy them!
