Multimedia Journalist

• Hometown?

Farimont, Minnesota

• What's your favorite part of your job?

Getting to report on events that are happening in Mankato, and then being able to put them all together for the station.

• What's your dream story?

My dream story would be to interview The Purple People Eaters, Randy Moss, and Cris Carter from the Minnesota Vikings. I would discuss the game of football during their time, and then they're opinions on what it's like in the present day. My family, and I are some of the biggest Vikings fans, that would be the highlight of my sports reporting career.

• What did you want to be when you were growing up?

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a professional football player.

• What got you interested in news and sports?

I was the coach's daughter in town so naturally I loved sports. I would go to Vikings games with my family, be at all the local sporting events, and I was even involved in sports until I was 23. I didn't know I wanted to be a sports reporter until two years ago when I got my start with Maverick Hockey Weekend as their ice-side reporter for the Division I MSU men's hockey team.

• What person(s) do you most admire?

My parents, Chris and Wendy Voss.

• What's your favorite candy?

Frozen Charleston Chews

• What's your favorite sport to watch?

Football and hockey

• What's your favorite band?

Motley Crue

• What's your favorite book?

"Girl, Wash Your Face" by Rachel Hollis

• What's your proudest moment?

My proudest moment would be getting to be an ice-side reporter for Fox Sports when the MSU women's hockey team pulled off an upset win against the No. 1 ranked Wisconsin Badgers.

• If you could spend a week anywhere, where would you go?

Bora Bora

Education:
