God, family, country, and blue collar roots—in that order … that pretty much describes me. I'm a Mainer through and through. After dusting off the snow, I stumbled out of Presque Isle, Maine, back in the late 70’s to attend UMaine, and have never left the Bangor area since. From farm work, logging, aviation, education, and broadcasting, you might say I've lived an adventurous life. I love my wife (the bumper sticker on my truck says so), children, grandkids, church family, my crazy dogs, my ‘ol ‘97 GMC truck, motorcycle, country music, and a cold one once in a while to take the edge off
I am the morning host and brand manager at Q-106.5, a two-time CMA Nominee for Small Market Personality of the Year and one-time ACM Nominee for Small Market Personality of the Year.

But that's okay because life is great at my busy household. I love cake but I'm trying to quit. The only sport I like is soccer. If I could be any animal I would be a lap cat because they've got it made. And if I weren't a radio DJ I'd like to be a philanthropist.
Being a part of the Q-106.5 Morning Show with JR Mitchell has made some positive changes in my life. First, I get to have a blast every morning at work! If our listeners laugh half as much as JR and I do, then we're doing our jobs right. And second, it means I'm home in the afternoons! I can spend time with my super-spoiled Jack Russell/Chocolate Lab mix, Copernicus, who's one of the loves of my life. And with the other one, my boyfriend Jim (once he gets out of work!) I have a new passion to go with my loves of books, movies, and metal detecting
