Well, they say there’s no place like home, right? It’s true. What a blessing it is to be able to come back home: Star 99.1. Originally here from 2006-2011, I left to pursue a radio opportunity in Philadelphia, but God moved a mountain and made a way for me to come back to the only radio station I’ve ever, truly loved. God works miracles and answers prayers, and me being at Star 99.1 again is living proof of His wonders.
More about me: “You sound like you’re from Jersey or Philly or something.” I’ve heard that a lot. I was born and raised in Central Jersey, went to Allentown High School in Western Monmouth, and spent A LOT of time in South Jersey growing up. You’ll hear a slight New Jersey accent out of me mixed with Philly slang.
A sub? Nah, it’s a hoagie.
Water ice? Nope. It’s Italian ice.
Taylor ham? No way. Pork roll.
I fold my pizza like a New Yorker and order a cheesesteak like a Philadelphian. See? I’m all mixed up. It’s all good, though.
When not on the radio, you can often find me dragging my teenage daughter Emily around to museums in the city, baseball games, book stores, flea markets, college football games (Go Irish!), shore points…pretty much everything she rolls her eyes at. I try to pack in as many activities as I can with her every weekend. It’s my hope that one day she’ll look back and smile when she thinks of everything we’ve done and everywhere we’ve been. And hey, I’m always looking out for something to do with her. Feel free to pass along some teen-friendly ideas.
A true Jersey girl at heart! I was born and raised in Old Bridge, Go Knights! Graduated from Rutgers University, Go Scarlet Knights! And I've purposely driven down to the emptiest of empty gas tanks to avoid pumping my own gas!
God blessed me with a great family! My mom taught me to be encouraging and always find the silver lining. My dad taught me to work hard and get the job done right. My sister taught me to chill out and stop being so high strung and my brother taught me that if I have to laugh at my own jokes, they're probably not that funny.
In November of 2018, I married my Army man, Mike! We "dated" when we were 14, which really meant we talked on the phone and went to the movies with my parents. Years and years later, we reconnected while he was deployed in Iraq. When he came back, he met my dog, Wesley. Wesley gave me the nod of approval and the rest is history!
Speaking of Wesley, he's an Australian Shepherd and God handpicked him for me. He loves long hikes, chasing the hose and stealing apples out of my bag. We knew something was missing and that's when we found Bentley! He's a cocker spaniel mix that came from a high kill shelter in Georgia! We just love him to pieces!
Let's connect! I'm excited to hear what God is doing in your life too!
