About Me:

I started my career in radio in my hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia before coming to The Eagle in 2006. Prior to that, I interned for Sony Music in Nashville and graduated from Middle Tennessee State University.

I’m passionate about animal rescue and work closely with our local shelters to feature an Adoptable Pet of the Week every Furry Friday. When I’m not at the radio station, I serve on the board of Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center, a 501 (c)(3) created To support the Norfolk Animal Care Center in sheltering and caring for Norfolk’s stray and homeless animals, to promote and facilitate adoptions, to assist with special needs medical care, to promote and support spay/neuter in the community and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

I live in Virginia Beach with my husband Brian along with our rescue crew (three rescue cats and a bearded dragon). I love to read and enjoy volunteering with Food Rescue US  and Norfolk Animal Care’s NACC Pack Adventures.
