I was born and raised in Mechanicville, NY, and have been in radio for over 25 years. I have lived and worked on Long Island in the Hamptons, in West Palm Beach, FL, Buffalo, NY, and Portland, ME. Brian and I have been together for 16 years and we love waking up the Capital Region each and every morning. I just moved back to my hometown where my 11-year-old son Ryan is attending my Alma mater. I married my best friend, Jenn, in August of 2022 and had the most perfect day. The theme of our wedding was based on the Disney movie, "Up". We even have a dog named Freddie after Mr. Fredrickson from the movie. We now have two dogs. The newest member of our family is Willie. He looks like a real-live white teddy bear. I am a true crime junky and will watch every Law & Order SVU episode over and over again. (My Dad worked on the show for several years and my name appears on the locker in the squad room in early episodes). I have a very close relationship with my amazing mom, Nancy who is on the show with us messing up song lyrics each week. I will fight anyone, anytime, if you say that someone else or a restaurant makes better eggplant than my mom. Thanks for allowing our personal lives into your world each morning. We hope to give you laughter and fun to start your day.
