Growing up in Chicopee, Massachusetts, I knew at a young age how much I loved music and how much I loved radio. My first studio tour was at the age of 5 – when my mom took me to visit 94.7 WMAS in Springfield, Massachusetts; her favorite radio station where I’d end up working shortly after graduating from Chicopee High School. I loved two things when I was a kid – playing baseball, and listening to the radio. TV and video games didn’t interest me.
I went on to attend and graduate with honors from Westfield State University (while working full time in radio), while interning and writing articles for The Republican, Western Massachusetts’ largest newspaper.
From the first time I had the opportunity to crack the mic – at the age of 16, at 3 in the morning on a Sunday on Kiss 95.7 in Hartford, I knew that this was the career for me – that I’d love to share the gift I was given to entertain.
Since then, my radio career has spanned six years as the night time host on i98.3, WILI-FM, in Willimantic, Connecticut; 5 years as a “jack of all trades” at 94.7 WMAS, in Springfield, Massachusetts; 6 months as the interim, remote program director of Z97.1 in Rutland, Vermont; and as program director of Kiss 98.3 in Winchester, Virginia.
Currently, I host the afternoon show (3-7pm) on the legendary KC101 in New Haven, CT; also serving as the assistant program and music director for the station.
In my spare time, I am a die hard fan of the New England Patriots (every girl I’ve ever dated has been told if we have a kid someday.. his name will be Brady), the Boston Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins; and UMass Minutemen basketball.
