I was born in Jackson, Michigan and grew up out on Lake LeAnn with my mom, dad and two younger sisters. There I learned a love for music, my personal sense of humor and thought only the coolest people ended up on the radio. With an 'old soul' and support from my family and boyfriend of five years, I attended Grand Valley State University for multimedia journalism. From there I worked with the Free Beer and Hot Wings Morning Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan and have now found my way to Lansing and am one of the cool radio people I always wanted to be!
