My radio career was… accidental. Even though I’m a second generation radio personality (it was my dad’s career, too), I had never even thought about it as a potential career. It wasn’t until I was being interviewed on the morning show of my favorite radio station promoting a local arena football team that I accidentally ended up with a part time job. Apparently “not being afraid of the microphone” and “talking naturally” was a big selling point. I fell in love. More than once, actually. The afternoon guy helped train me, and in no time I was added to do a full show with him in the afternoon. That’s where we became best friends. Years later, we’re married.

The other love of my life is our husky-mix, Tiani. She’s so beautiful, she has her own Instagram account. I love dogs, but I had never owned a husky before… you have to be okay with dog glitter all over everything for the rest of your life. Fortunately, she’s so wonderful, she’s worth the hair. I love to craft. I already loved it prior to owning a Cricut, but that just amplified my obsession, and I went from a couple small boxes of supplies to a whole room dedicated to it. Okay, it’s also our office and home studio, but the craft supplies dominate. I’m an on again/off again workout enthusiast. I’ve run more 5Ks than I can count and four half-marathons. At some point I’d like to run a marathon, but I don’t know that I’ll ever be in that good of running shape to accomplish it. I also like feeling strong, so I do weight lift. My biggest problem is that I really like food that’s not so good for you, and I HATE cooking, so if you’d ever like to be my personal chef (and get paid in hugs and appreciation), I’m game.

I love hanging out with you in the afternoons while we listen to our favorite songs and chat about the latest crazy internet challenge! Radio isn’t a job, it’s a passion for me, so I’m excited to get to know you and MEET you out and about, but always hang out with you 2-7 in the afternoon on Y107!
