I love radio and can’t think of anything I’d rather do, except maybe be a beach bum! Yep, I’m a beach princess at heart. I've been in radio for more than 30 years. (Dang, that can’t be right!) I love music of all kinds. I’m so blessed to be married to my husband John, the love of my love life! We have two furry four-footed children (that would be cats to you and me, but don’t tell them that). I love to travel, especially to the Caribbean, enjoy getting lost in a good book, camping, off-roading with my husband and just hanging out with family and friends. Oh and shoes! Oh, how I love shoes!
