How does one get lucky enough to do this “radio thing” for a living? Short answer, I have no idea! However a few added details below, for the curious:
In 7th grade I wrote an autobiography for an assignment where I declared to the world that I wanted to be a Radio DJ. I’m sure my family wasn’t worried at first, seeing as my career choices before that included airplane mechanic, kindergarten teacher, and a firefighter. I bet they assumed this radio phase would pass and their daughter would get a “real job” as many have put it through the years.
Well [spoiler alert] I haven’t and I couldn’t be happier… unless I had my own personal Arby’s in my basement, that would be the ultimate situation.
Born and raised in a small town at the FAR north side of Metro Detroit, I’ve been a Michigan girl my whole life and can’t picture ever leaving! (Summers are AMAZING here, are they not?) I’ve worked with some fantastic, inspiring people during my radio stops in Port Huron, Detroit, Saginaw, and now here at my home in Flint. It’s been quite a journey to say the least!
