My friends growing up in Otoe, Neb., urged me to seek a radio job, but it took me three decades to find the right opportunity. I got my journalism degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and began work at the Nebraska City News-Press in 1988. I received the city's Tree Planter award for work at Riverview Nature Park and received Nebraska Press Association awards for spot news, featuring writing, photography and video news reports. I was the first Nebraska reporter to Tweet from a Nebraska Courtroom. I am currently a volunteer with ReLeasT Ministries and I'm on the preaching rotation for the Saturday night outreach.
