Why radio? I’ve wanted to work in radio since I was very young. Music has always been a big part of my life and I enjoy sharing my passion with others, plus I like to talk. So it’s the best of both worlds!

What was your first concert? Meatloaf back in 4th grade at the OOB Ball Park!

Music people would be surprised you love? I’ve always joked around that so far as music goes; I was born during the wrong generation. Many of my favorite bands (Alice Cooper and Guns N’ Roses) come out of the 70’s and 80’s. And at the same time, I’m a huge fan of Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. A recent album I like? Greg Allman’s new music is great…still a classic but it’s new.

What is your favorite artist/band/album? Led Zeppelin “Presence”

What is your favorite thing about Maine? Living so far in the woods that I cannot see my neighbors! That and I love the wildlife here!

What would people be most surprised to learn about you? I love to belly dance! I have been taking lessons and it is my goal to perform someday!

What is the last book you read? The First Law Series by Joe Abercrombie. I love epic fantasy novels.

Best advice you have ever gotten? Be yourself. I’ve followed that advice all my life.

Any pets? Lots! We currently have four dogs, three cats, two rabbits, two snakes, and a turtle! I love animals and support animal adoption!

TV shows you can’t miss? The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson! I am a night owl and watching Craig Ferguson is one of my favorite parts of the night.

Most embarrassing moment? Riding the bumper boats at Fun Town when I was younger…I couldn’t steer the boat back in and was stuck doing circles in the middle of the pool with everyone watching. Someone had to come help me out. I haven’t ridden bumper boats since.
