Proudly born and raised right here in Central Minnesota. (Go LPGE Thunder!) After high school I went to Brown College for Radio Broadcasting, and did radio in the Twin Cities for a year before moving back home to Central Minnesota. When I'm not behind a microphone, you can usually find me on the golf course, in the kitchen trying out a new recipe I found on Pinterest, or walking my dog Norman, who was adopted from the Tri-County Humane Society. I host bar trivia on weeknights, and spend most weekends enjoying cold beverages with good friends. Follow along on Instagram and Twitter @AbbeyOnAir!
