Contract Sales

My time at Public Radio 90 began about twenty years ago as a student at NMU. I began working at WNMU-FM as a Board Operator in October of 1987. I worked a good two and a half years on various on-air shifts including Morning Edition and Night Studio Jazz. Night studio propelled me into the world of radio jazz. After graduating with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Marketing/Management from NMU, I then left campus life to work in retail management.

I spent nearly twenty years in retail starting in mass retail and most of the time working for natural food cooperatives in Nevada, Minnesota, and in Marquette. About four years ago I set out on a change of pace and wound up substitute teaching in some school districts in Marquette County. I began to really embrace the teaching parts of the job and realized that enabling kids to learn was and is a passion of mine.

Working in the classroom full time meant having to go back to school to embark on a teaching certificate from NMU in the Elementary Education program. Once back at NMU, I was rehired at WNMU-FM as a Board Operator on-air. I am also a Student Underwriting Representative for WNMU-FM and WNMU-TV.

It is an absolute pleasure to be back at Public Radio 90. Hosting Sunday Swing and Jazz Showcase is an absolute blast along with working the other shifts. Once I obtain an Elementary Education Certificate I will then leave WNMU-FM as a Board Operator. I will have the pleasure of being affiliated with Public Radio 90 as an Independent Underwriting Representative.
