I was born in New York and raised in Connecticut. I am proud to call Newtown my hometown. I love to travel where the palm trees are, but I am a Northeast girl through and through. I have a husband and two kids...well, five kids if you count the dog and cats. I love time with my family, but love spending time with friends too. It's a good balance! I like to refer to myself as a "Disney enthusiast" (my husband likes to say obsessed), because I love taking trips to Disney World and actually research Disney topics for fun...okay, maybe I am slightly obsessed. My favorite TV show of all-time is Friends. No matter how many times I watch the episodes I crack up! Could that show BE any funnier? Sorry, couldn't resist. Love Sons of Anarchy too, I'm so sad it's over! I loved watching Jax...I mean, I loved watching the show. On the plus side I still have Grimm. Love me some Nick Burkhardt! I have worked at a bunch of different radio stations in Connecticut with different formats, but country has got to be one of my favorites. The music and the audience are so much fun! Thanks for joining me during your workday on Kicks 105.5!
