I am a Milwaukee girl born and bred. I'm an alumni of Oak Creek Sr. High School, class of 1995. (I know, I gave the year...I am NOT afraid! LOL!) I knew I wanted to be in radio since I was a young student at OCHS. In fact, this is not my first time on the radio here in Milwaukee. I started my career at our sister station FM106.1 and worked there for 9 years on and off the air. In fact, it's not my first time on Oldies 95.7! I did a few overnight shifts in the late 90's. Wow how time flies! Radio took me to Sheboygan and Green Bay where I've lived the last 7 years. And now, as Oprah would say it, "I'm having a full circle moment"! I am so happy to be "home" and back on the radio in my hometown!
A few things about me:
-I LOVE music. I've seen everyone from Elton John (4 times in 3 states but whose counting?), to the rock band Poison, and of course I'm a little bit country with my love of Tim McGraw.
-I have an obsession with magazines. I get, ahem, a few in the mail each month.
-Shoes = Love
-Purses (refer to shoes above)
-Friends = The greatest TV show of all time...Sex and the City is a close 2nd
-HGTV = The greatest network on TV (it's the only channel my fingers seem to know)
-No kids but I do have 2 dogs that I totally spoil. The are little black toy poodles, Sadie & Missy. Yes, I am that girl. LOL!
-In my free time I love to spend it with my HUSBAND Jason, my family and my friends: some I've had since childhood. (We got married September 8th!!!)
It is beyond words being able to live back home in Oak Creek and have a career doing what I love. I am truly blessed! Thank you for listening to Oldies 95.7, I appreciate it and look forward to getting to know you all!
