Before joining the Post Bulletin in 2022, she attended Kansas State University and served as an editor for the student newspaper, the Kansas State Collegian, and news director for Wildcat 91.9, K-State's student radio station. She earned a bachelor's degree in English creative writing. In 2020, she moved to Central Minnesota to work full-time as a local radio news reporter.
