Heidi was born and raised in Annandale Minnesota, a small town just south of St. Cloud, but got to know the Northland while attending school at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
She graduated from UMD in the fall of 2021 with degrees in Communication, Journalism, and Film Studies.
At school she was a part of the on-campus news organization, The Bark, serving as a reporter, social media manager and editor-in-chief. She also worked for UMD athletics, reporting on social media during different sporting events.
When not working she loves to be with friends and spend time outdoors. She grew up in the heart of the lakes and loves being so close to Lake Superior.
Heidi is really passionate about the City-by-City segment during the 4 p.m. newscast and getting to talk to new people. If you have any suggestions send them her way, firstname.lastname@example.org.
