It was my passion for music and discovering the operations of a radio station during my college years that landed me in radio broadcasting. With each job opportunity that came my way, I had earned positions as an Assistant Program Director, Promotion Director, and Music Director. After reaching those goals early in my radio career, my next goal was to work in a major market. I landed a job at 98 Rock in Baltimore, MD. Then, shortly after that, I got pregnant with my first child! I think that's why my daughter loves rock today! I've worked in Rock; Top 40 (contemporary); Big Band; Adult Contemporary; Oldies, and now Country since 2009! After moving to the Evansville area in 1993, I was hired on WIKY, where where I hosted The Saturday Night Dance Party for 13 years
