I grew up in the Deer Isle-Stonington area of Maine, more specifically Little Deer Isle, and relocated to Union in 2019 where I am building a tiny home with my boyfriend, Jake. I graduated from the New England School of Communications at Husson University in 2012 with a bachelor of science in media studies and a concentration in journalism.
For 7 years, I worked at multiple radio stations in New England including WSCS in New Hampshire, WERS in Boston, and most recently as news director at Star 97.7/WNSX-FM in Ellsworth. I got to write, produce, and voice the local news for people in Washington and Hancock Counties. While at WNSX, I won a number of awards from the Maine Association of Broadcasters including awards in election coverage, enterprise news, continuing news, feature news, and social media. Dream Local Digital is certainly a change of pace from the radio world, but I love my job and role here. I’ve been with the #DreamTeam since January 2016.
I enjoy meeting new people and helping businesses improve and succeed. When I’m not at my keyboard, I enjoy fashion (I’m addicted to buying pretty dresses), playing video games, spending time bugging Jake, going on road trips, baking, being an aunt to Asa, and being thrifty. My personal motto is “if it isn’t on sale, don’t buy it.” My most overused emoji is “😂” and my favorite social channel is probably Instagram.
