I joined Iowa’s Best Country, KIX 101.1 in May of 1999, after attending a job fair at Marshalltown Community College, where I was attending school to become a Veterinarian. I needed a job, and I love music, so it was the perfect job at the time. Crazy to know at the time, KIX 101.1 would become my future job, and I absolutely love it.
I’ve done pretty much every shift at KIX 101.1, and I’ve worked at our sister station, KFJB, running the board for sports and Sunday morning programming.
In my free time, I enjoy watching the Iowa State Cyclones, The Dallas Cowboys, and Going Camping.
