In her own words: My dream job while at Iowa State was either to work for Oprah Winfrey or ESPN. Following graduation, I went back home to Montana and, less than a month later, my dream became reality. I have been working for ESPN since January 2011 and it’s been more than I could ever imagine. I have produced various video content for “SportsCenter,” “Baseball Tonight,” the NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four, and, most recently, “Sunday NFL Countdown”. One of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had at ESPN was Chris Berman complimenting a piece I produced on-air. I’m grateful to be able to say I’m living my dream.
