In my radio career, the best way to explain it is “the scenic route.” I caught the radio bug while attending Carroll College in Waukesha and hopping on the airwaves for our ten-watt WCCX. After graduating, I decided I wanted to keep on the radio route. I went to Madison Media Institute, and I landed my first official radio gig at Magic 98! That’s right, I was on overnight on weekends here, so I guarantee nobody remembers me!
From there, my radio journey took me to other places, including Platteville and Janesville, and even a brief stint in Iowa. I took a few other side paths on the journey (social studies teacher and medical records clerk), but I was always pulled back to the radio path. This is truly a full-circle moment for me, returning to Magic 98. This is where I learned good habits and saw what a radio station should be. It’s pretty awesome to come back home, to be on the air every weekday from noon til 3.
I was born and raised just down the interstate in Janesville. My husband Scott and I have 2 kiddos, son Kieran and daughter Cora. Plus, we have a lot of furry kids thrown in the mix. I’m a total history nerd, and I am most happy when I’m road tripping to tour a historical site or museum. I stop at all the historical markers along the way! I love to travel and see new places—my husband knows that I will find the best historic homes and sites to visit wherever we go. I am a lover of music, from many genres and generations. I sing out loud to songs in the car, and in the Magic 98 studio. (I hope I never accidentally leave my mic on!) I love to bake and cook, and I am known for my love of crockpot cooking. However, I now also have an Instant Pot, so I’m expanding my horizons. I love sharing recipes, so don’t be shy!
(PS: I’m taking over 12-3 for Jillene Khan, but she’s not going far. She’ll be on Magic every weekday from 3 til 7.)
