I was born and spent my younger years in Manhattan, KS, home of Kansas State University – Go Wildcats! Went to High School in Albuquerque and graduated from Sandia High School – Go Matadors! Ended up at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, NM and graduated with a degree in Business Administration – Go Greyhounds!
I’m so lucky to have two incredible kids, Ryan and Amanda (they’re kinda lucky to have me for a mom, too…just sayin), we have a spoiled cat named Gizmo, and lots of friends and family to spend our free time with!
I started my radio career lots of years ago and I’m passionate about the industry! I’ve worn a bunch of hats throughout my career in radio (even to the point of soldering parts back together when we took a major lightening hit one spring) but hanging out with our listeners is the best part of being a broadcaster!
