Birthday: June 28th…I take flowers (I love purple), cash and checks that don’t bounce

Hometown: Born in Virginia!!  Just south of Richmond

Current Residence: I live in Spotsylvania County … which I’m pretty sure takes up 72% of the state … why so large??

Family: Yes, I have family, and they claim me most of the time!

Education: Fuzzy, but there was a lot of CiCi’s Pizza and Taco Bell involved #CrunchWrapSupremeRocksMyWorld

Your sign: Cancer — I read a quote about “cancers” once.  It said, “When there’s a job to do, they roll up their sleeves and get to it.”  I also just realized, I’m wearing something sleeveless right now, what the heck does that mean?!

Favorite sports team(s): I actually love watching tennis … I’m not sure if it’s the outfits or the weird moans, but I love it!

Hobbies: I like short walks to my bed, also long gazes into my refrigerator, drive thru milkshakes, and I love to play the bass guitar!! #GirlswithGuitars


What has been your most interesting listener interaction?  Oh gosh … I’ve had so many interesting experiences meeting listeners! It’s honestly my favorite thing ever to meet our fans!  I’ve been so lucky to be in this area for 10 years now, so I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many people (including kids that were 5 and are now 15, yikes). Not to mention the countless people I have met during our annual Care-a-thon for Children’s National – the children, the stories, and watching our community step up for our own Children’s Hospital, just breathtaking.  It means the world to me that all of you let me be a part of your morning routine, while you’re getting ready for school or work or driving your ridiculous commute in this crazy traffic around here. I get calls and texts and tweets from so many awesome people – nurses, doctors, police officers, teachers, bus drivers, small business owners – SHOUT OUT to my 5 o’clock Club – and I’m truly grateful that I can share the start of a new day with you!! Also one time, I had an undercover agent text in from a stakeout! I was excited, but also scared 🙂

What did you want to be when you grew up? A Podiatrist – then I found out that meant touching people’s feet, NOT someone who stands behind a podium all the time.
