As general manager & COO, I ensure that our daily operations and activities are aligned with our mission of cultivating the mind, informing, inspiring, entertaining, and strengthening community. This entails wearing a lot of hats and loving the fact that every day is a mixture of different challenges and opportunities.
I believe in the power of public radio to strengthen communities and bring people together. Civil discourse, listening and valuing different opinions are skills that we champion daily. Through our news programming we provide background and insight to help foster communication and inform citizens. Through our music programming we develop connections with others through a common thread of music, encouraging a focus on the similarities in each other rather than the differences.
I began my career in public radio in 2008, when I joined the KUNC team. While my background in finance has been immensely helpful, I am grateful every day to have made the transition from the accounting industry to public media.
I was born and raised in Colorado, and like a true Coloradan I love my Subaru, the sunshine and wearing jeans almost every day. My husband and I have a full house with two teenage daughters, two cats, and two dogs.
