As the Morning Edition host at KUNC I help our Colorado communities get ready to take on the day! I report the latest news, present the amazing work of our KUNC newsroom, and occasionally get to make Star Trek references on the air. You probably hear me when you’re drinking your morning coffee, heading to school or work, or taking a morning stroll.
Courage and community are the values that drive my world, and I get to live them out every day here at KUNC. I see public radio being courageous in its risk taking, when we choose to provide context that challenges common narratives, and when we dive into the complexity and mess of life. I believe this can help us feel more connected to our local, regional, and global communities.
Before KUNC I worked as a Weekend Edition host and reporter at KLCC public radio in my hometown of Eugene, Oregon. I graduated in 2015 from the University of Oregon with BAs in journalism and political science (and minored in Arabic).
When I’m not hosting Morning Edition, you can find me teaching Jazzercise, reading or watching scifi, snuggling my cat Paxton, or cheering on the Oregon women’s basketball team. Go Ducks!
