All Things Considered Host

One of my earliest memories is listening to Car Talk and eating a cinnamon roll at the breakfast table. I grew up with my ears full of NPR, but it wasn’t until I reached high school and started paying attention to the media landscape that I realized how unique it is.

I graduated from Windsor High School and earned my bachelor’s degree at Colorado State University in English. I decided to pursue a career at NPR and graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a Master of Arts in journalism. I am very excited to be a part of such a well respected and award winning station.
