I have been in radio since 1995; just out of college. I graduated from Tarleton State University with a BS degree in Communications and minors in English and Business. I married the love of my life in 2016 after dating for 9 years....we wanted to make sure we were compatible ;) I love doing anything crafty; painting, DIY projects, gardening, cooking, making jewelry...anything to keep busy. I also love to do absolutely nothing at times; just veg in front of the TV or take a nap.
