I've been on the air since 2009, and I love hanging out with ya! We chat about fitness and exercise, relationships, and workplace experiences, pop culture news, kids, and other things that present huge challenges. Like online dating. Oh my goodness. Dating on the apps is time consuming, but if we try to meet someone in person it's stalkery and creepy, so we forge ahead. I was born and raised in the rural town of Elwood, Nebraska with one stop light, a court house, three churches, and a bar. I'm a Cornhusker, and graduated with a Broadcasting degree from the University of Nebraska, and then worked all over the country in radio. When I'm not working, I'm usually running. I try to run between 6 and 9 miles a day because I love that runners high! I try to eat clean too. I love shopping, going out for salmon and wine, seeing live music and comedy, and listening to all kinds of music. I've got three daughters, and that means I'm an Uber mom, taking them to gymnastics, karate, softball, or whatever is in season. They always crack me up and ask odd questions, and give the best hugs and make me realize what's important in life. Feel free to connect via email anytime using the form here on the website. I love hearing from you!
