Morning Show Producer
I’m one of those people who were born and raised in the Seattle area, spending my summer days down at Green Lake and snowy days sledding down our hill. I loved growing up in the city! I remember J.P. Patches, the Bubbleator at Seattle Center and my favorite radio person, Charlie Brown!
It’s embarrassing but ever since I saw WKRP on TV, I’ve wanted to be in radio. I’ve been at SPIRIT 105.3 for a few years and many people here have seen my two teenage boys, Nick and Sam grow up. I’ve been the morning show producer for a few years now and I joke that it’s my job to make Steve & Amy sound like geniuses (not like they need any help.)
My husband Jeff and I love movies and pop culture and you may remember my “Mom at the Movies” feature. He’s a huge fan of Disney and until recently, every single trip that we took in our many years of marriage involved Disney in some way (including our honeymoon!) Our family is all about fun, whether it’s playing games, watching movies or going for a weekend getaway. Nicolas and Sam are so great to hang out with and we’re just grateful that they still want to tell us what’s going on in their lives.
