Originally from Mt. Zion, I’ve been in radio 14 years. I’m married to Tom, and have three children. My favorite foods include Mexican, and peanut butter and pickle sandwiches (try it, you’ll like it)! Favorite TV shows include Friends, The Biggest Loser, Friday Night Lights, and The Soup on E. Fever Pitch, and How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days are my favorite movies, and my favorite country stars are Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, and Chris Cagle. GO ILLINI!
