Alum Success

For me, everything started at Lake State. I got such a well-rounded communication background after spending four years as a student athlete at LSSU. I was able to work behind the scenes for our hockey and basketball programs, while also being an active member on campus. I even had the opportunity to practice journalism on a study abroad trip to Costa Rica with the Honors program. After I graduated, I decided to dive a little deeper into the field by pursuing a Master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism, specializing in Sports Reporting, at Boston University. I felt like I had developed such a strong base at LSSU, and as a result, while studying and working in Boston, I was able to really refine my skills and become more marketable. I am so grateful for the experiences I gained in this entire process. What I learned as a Laker got me into a top broadcast graduate program at Boston University. While in Boston I was able to cover a variety of incredible events: from the 2012 presidential election, to the Red Sox World Series title at Fenway Park, to the bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line. I landed my first full time journalism job at ABC 6 News in Rochester, Minnesota as a sports anchor and reporter. It requires an incredible amount of hard work and dedication, but it feels so awesome to say that I truly love what I do. It’s been such a ride, but I will never forget where it all started!
