Hi! Thanks for stopping by 96.7 The River! I hope you're as happy to be here as I am! After being on the air since the age of 18, I decided to hang up my headphones awhile back. Well.....never say never, because here we are again! And I'm very excited about working with a group of radio veterans who love this music like I do! After living in Colorado for awhile, and on the east coast for about 20 years, I made my way back home to Minnesota several years ago. Jay and I live in St. Joseph with our dog Neena, and our herd of cats. We are also a hospice foster home with Grey Face Rescue. When I'm not on the air, I put on my Creative Directors hat at the station, working in the production department. Outside of work, I volunteer at the Tri-County Humane Society, love love love to travel, spend time with our furry kids, get together with family and friends, read, go for wogs (that's a combination of a walk/jog), ride my bike, and occasionally think about gardening and pulling weeds. I'm lousy at both. I'm a big believer that life gives back to you what you give to others. Kindness, empathy, patience, understanding and love. You have the opportunity to make a difference in every single life that you come into contact with. Always be kind!
