Q & A

Why I got into radio:
My first experience with radio was when I came to work at Colorado Public Radio. I wanted a change from the health care business environment and felt that this would be a very interesting organization for which to work. My instincts were right.

How and why I came to CPR:
I came to Denver with my partner who was being transferred to a new territory, and started in an MBA program while looking for a job. I happily stumbled upon an ad for a business manager at Colorado Public Radio, and I’ve been here ever since.
