If you were a crayon, what color would you be & why? Blue. If you saw my closet, everything is a shade of Blue.
If you could have dinner with any three people, living or dead, who would they be? Joan Rivers, Whitney Houston, Jackie O
When not at work, where would you be most likely found? I love exploring antique shops/estate sales/auctions and taking our boat to Sandy Neck. I equally love binging on reality TV.
What was your very first job? I was a cashier at a supermarket. I still remember the codes for some produce. Bananas? 4011
Why/how did you choose a career in radio? Radio chose me. Honestly! I’d interned at a TV news station during high school, but was studying computer science when a DJ asked if I’d ever considered working in radio. I gave it a try and within a year had a full time job and went to college around my air shift. That was almost 20 years ago! I’ve worked in Texas, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Seattle, Boston and the UK doing music radio and news broadcasts.

But there’s SO MANY MORE
