Well, hello there! I’m so excited to hang out with you Monday through Friday from 10am to 3pm. My life is busy as I balance two jobs with getting a master’s degree in Journalism but being busy keeps me out of trouble.
I’ve been lucky enough to work as a radio DJ in Bakersfield, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Tucson and Ventura. My mom and brother have been in Oxnard for 25 years, so it is the city I always come back to. It doesn’t get any better than taking my niece to the beach on a perfect 75-degree day.
Hometown: Van Nuys, CA
How She Got into Radio: I had a speech teacher in high school who was obsessed with my voice. He thought I sounded like the actress, Holly Hunter. Since Raising Arizona was one of my favorite movies growing up, I thought it was an awesome comparison. I was always obsessed with music, although in those days it was Depeche Mode, The Cure and Nine Inch Nails. But, his obsession got me thinking that maybe I could use my voice as a career one day. So, I took some radio classes at Moorpark College and got an internship at Y-107 in Los Angeles. The rest is history as they say.
Favorite Country Artists: I find myself blasting the speakers in the KHAY studio to Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Justin Moore and Luke Bryan.
Favorite Sports Teams: I’m not a big sports fan, but I always find myself rooting for the Dodgers when it’s baseball season and the Arizona Cardinals when it’s football season.
Favorite Food: Sushi, Italian and Mexican. My mom makes homemade pizza once a week that is to die for and probably my favorite meal of all time.
Pets: None, unless you want to count my crazy niece.
