It’s so great to be back home in Missouri! I’m a Missouri girl, born and bred. I grew up on a cattle farm, and went to school at Missouri State University. (Back then, we called it SMS). I have two fur-babies. Tink is my Great Dane, and Elwood is my Doberman. I’m the youngest in a large farm family, and my mom still refers to me as her “baby”. Ha! I enjoy riding my bike on all the beautiful greenways in Springfield. The Katy Trail rocks! My dogs love Cruse Dog Park! I love the friendly folks of southwest Missouri. There are no better people. I hope you’ll join me every weekday morning. Thank you for listening!
After attending Evangel University, I have definitely found a home here in SW Missouri. My wife is a very gifted mental health therapist, and I like to think of myself as her most gifted client. We were married on Christmas Eve, 2011, and with every day that goes by, I realize just how amazing a Christmas gift she truly was. We do not have any kids (yet) but we do have a tiny little mutt named, Sophie, who you’ll probably stumble upon if you ever walk the path around the lake at Nathaniel Green Park. Most weekends you’ll find us either grocery shopping, golfing or at our church. And of course, every weekday morning, I hope you’ll join Cheryl and I for a friendly wake up call, on 105.9 KGBX.

Is Cher wearing two wigs at the same time, or is that a raccoon on her head?
When humans bring a dog into their lives, they are most often looking for a companion. What they may not realize is that they are getting a teacher as well. Every single day dogs teach us important life lessons about love, overcoming adversity and healing. This video is proof! Hug your dog today to say thanks.
