I grew up in the Texas Panhandle. It’s home! I love the people and I absolutely love this community. Amarillo has a big heart! I started my radio career in 1995 when I walked into the Broadcasting Department of WTAMU. In 2001, I joined Mix 94.1 crew on Middays. In my free time, I spend time with the love of my life, hanging out on the patio and listening to music, and laughing. I love spending time with my son going to museums and talking about history, learning about Legos and of course everything having to do with Star Wars. He's also a music lover and he loves all the genres, from Classical to Current hits. When I have extra time, I love reading a good book, however I need some great book suggestions so send them my way. I will admit though, my Netflix addiction does take away from my reading, and it has a habit of completely stealing my Sundays. Thank you so much for spending a part of your day with me!
