Hey there! I was Born and raised in Tacoma, but my family has lived in Wenatchee for decades. Been in the valley since 2020, but reporting since 2021. If you can't find me perusing the library, I will be cooking my signature 'squash and sauce' recipe, playing video games, gardening, or smelling the rain. Some of my favorite shows and movies include Daisies, Severance, and Metropolis. My goal while working for KPQ AM is to keep our listeners updated on our local area.
