I started working in radio while enrolled at Spring Arbor University. From the Fall of 2011 until graduation in Spring of 2013, I was employed at 106.9 Home.fm. I worked on-air 7-9 p.m. weekdays and 1-3 p.m. weekends.
Under the title of Administrative Artistic Assistant, I produced various audio projects for Spring Arbor University’s Communication Department including producing an audiobook for Clark Cothern’s, At the Heart of Every Great Father and Wally Metts’, The Santa Papers.
I also created Counterpoint, a student-led audio series that worked to inform local students with news, inspire with art, and challenge with different perspectives.
After I graduated I started to intern at WGTE, writing a small podcast series about the struggles of being a recent college grad. The thirteen-part series was initially scheduled to air but then was moved to an online platform after WGTE hired me as Morning Classics host.
I hosted NPR’s Morning Edition for a few months each summer while its regular host is traveling abroad.
I produced an arts and culture show for the same program. The series is called The Rough Draft Diaries and it airs every Wednesday morning at 7:45 am.
