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 15 years and we love waking up the Capital Region each and every morning. I am getting ready to move back to my hometown where my 10-year-old son Ryan will attend my Alma mater. I will be getting married to my best friend, Jenn, at the end of 2021 and we are having a Disney wedding. We love everything Disney and even have a dog named Freddie after Mr. Fredrickson from the movie UP. 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.
