I grew up in Elkhart, Indiana, São Paulo, Brazil and Melbourne, Australia. It made for an interesting and exciting childhood that ultimately landed me in New York for college, where I earned a BFA in Conservatory Theatre. While raising my daughter, Hannah, I discovered my love for and talent with Voice-Overs and Radio. 25 years later, I have never looked back. I have been consistently and happily “On the Air” since my very first gig.
My first decade in radio saw me jockeying music on Smooth Jazz, Oldies, and Adult Contemporary formats in New York and Connecticut. I eventually took a management and Program Director position and performed a daily talk show on SiriusXM.
This past decade in radio, I’ve hosted a series of talk shows on SiriusXM, legendary WABC in New York City, WLS in Chicago, and WGCH in Greenwich,CT. My shows have been interview style, advertorial programs, and even a well-known psychic themed, live call-in show. Talking to and connecting with people and sharing stories is my passion. I love to use my voice to inspire, uplift, and put meaningful and positive content out into the world.
In addition to radio, I am a veteran Voice-Over artist, Writer, Actress, Speaker and Teacher/Professor. Connecting with others, on or off the air, is my greatest joy.
