While I spent a few years "away" for college and then for work, I'm grateful to be back home and raising my kids in the same place that I grew up. As far as my background...the nutshell version is: oldest of 4, Theater geek, grew up in Orono and Bangor. I tricked some people in to giving me various jobs in broadcasting--including WLBZ2, WABI TV5, Q106.5, Z107.3 & i-95 95.7FM. (Wasn't qualified for a single one of those but don't let them know that!) I love to chat, so in front of a mic or on camera are the places I feel most at home. My life is weird. I like to share that so others feel more normal! I'm a single mamma to 4 great kids who keep me young at heart and have an awesome extended family who keeps me grounded--both are the reason that what was left of my sanity has disappeared. I love hanging out with friends and making people feel good through music! Thanks for letting me spend time with you during your day!
