I was a fan of WBBM Newsradio 780 long before joining the staff as a reporter in January, 2006.
I grew up in the Chicago suburbs, graduated from the University of Illinoisat Urbana-Champaign and earned a master’s degree in Public Affairs Reporting at the University of Illinois at Springfield.
I worked at the Illinois Radio Network for a number of years, where I covered stories on pretty much any subject of interest to the entire state. That includes a trip to Cuba with a delegation from Illinois, the 2000 Democratic National Convention, and the beginning of Governor Ryan’s corruption trial.
I live on the north side of Chicago with my husband and son.
