As a kid, my family moved every four to six years, stopping in the shadow of major market radio stations across the country. From Chicago to Detroit, Philly to LA, I fell in love with radio – the music and on-air personalities creating the familiar soundtrack of my new address, helping me navigate new schools, new friends, and a new life. When I was invited to become part of Sierra Vista’s on-air family, I felt I was finally home. With the nomadic life behind me, I’ve lived in Cochise County longer than anywhere else and I love it. With great hiking, amazing friends, and a deep connection to the local music scene, Sierra Vista is not only where I raised my family, but where my roots have finally been set. In a rare moment of downtime, you’ll find me curled up with a good book and a cup of coffee, my two rescue, lab-pit mixes snuggled up close by. Sharing music and radio with Sierra Vista is my passion and I enjoy every moment!
