I'm a 5th Generation Texan raised in the Galveston area. After attending Sam Houston State University, where I studied Musical Theatre and Radio Television and Film, I accepted a job in radio in Beaumont, and have stayed in Southeast Texas. I'm married to a great fella, Randy, who is from Louisiana and went to McNeese. His side of our family has been awesome about me coming to Gator 99.5, letting me know they can hear me now, (they couldn't before), and my friends and family in Southeast Texas can still hear me. (I'm so impressed, you can hear Gator99.5 for MILES, and MILES!!) We have two kids, spend a lot of time when we're not working with our family, and live a happy life that fills me with gratitude. I love music, especially Country Music, most creative things, and I love to laugh. I'm excited to be part of the Gator 99.5 crew and look forward to meeting you!
