Some would say I was born to be in the broadcasting business!
I was raised on a 40-acre horse farm in Churchill, Ontario by parents who both starred on “Wayne and Shuster”. My mother was a model turned elementary school teacher, while my father was a radio pirate in England, before becoming a popular singer here in Canada in the 1970's. It was a very interesting and incredible childhood!
I had a deep voice for a little girl and was always happy to entertain, put on a show for guests, and even wrote my own plays (always casting myself in the lead role, of course). Our house was always filled with music, which quickly became the oxygen of my life, and my father started taking me into recording studios with him, as soon as I could talk. That's how it all began...
I've been involved in the radio/TV industry as an Announcer/Host, Producer, Writer, and News Anchor for about 20 years, which is amazing since I'm only 29! I have had the privilege of working at some of the best stations in the country and some of the highlights of my career include: being nominated for Media Person Of The Year at the 2001 Prairie Music Awards, interviewing the legendary BB King, becoming the first Female “Solo” Morning Show Host in eastern Ontario, spending a few years at 680 News in Toronto, and helping the 107.5 Kool FM Morning Show climb to #1 in the ratings for the first time in the station's history!
I am also a certified CanFitPro personal trainer (who hates working out), very happily divorced (allergic to marriage), am obsessed with both Wonder Woman and Princess Leia (who isn't?), rescue animals that come across my path (my fur babies), love to watch horror movies ('Seven' is my fav), am the “Best Auntie Ever” (I have that in writing), sing karaoke (with some liquid courage), & love to make people laugh (because a smile is priceless)!
I hope you enjoy my material and look forward to hearing from you!
