If you would have asked me a year ago if I would move from beautiful Seattle to Billings, MT, I probably would have said no because the state of Montana was not even on my radar! Originally from San Antonio, TX, my family and I moved to Oregon when I was 5 years old. Both of my parents were in the United States Air Force stationed in San Antonio (and many other places all over the world) and after I was born, decided to retire. 22 years of service each! I spent all of my life from there growing up in Aumsville, OR. I attended Oregon State University (Go Beavs!) and that's where I fell in love with media and radio. I was already a live music junky and originally thought I would major in music and business but there are few people called to radio and once you have the bug, you can't shake it! I interned at a few different country music radio stations doing promotions, marketing and events and also at the Oregon Jamboree music festival. Then, I landed the job of a lifetime at the biggest country music station in Seattle. I spend 2 years there pouring my whole life and soul into that place because I truly believe in the music and what we do in radio. But then, I got a Facebook message from a random person in Idaho about Billings, MT and literally the rest is history. In April, my husband and I packed up our whole house and moved here to Billings and haven't looked back. We absolutely LOVE it here. We even bought our first house, so I guess we are sticking around for a while! Being here at 97.1 KISS FM is an absolute dream and I feel like I'm living the life I always worked for. On that note, if you have a dream or something that you want, you CAN achieve it no matter who you are or where you come from or how many people have told you that you can't or won't. Hard work will always pay off. I believe that with everything in my being.
