I am a former “Yat” from the New Orleans area and have made Acadiana my home since 1990. Once bitten by the radio bug while in my second year of college at Nicholls State University, I received a B.A. in Mass Communications with a Business emphasis. As they say, “the rest is history,” and I have worked in various radio markets including Thibodeaux, Houma, Morgan City and finally here in Acadiana where I met my husband and biggest supporter of over 20 years, Denis.

With daughters Rachel and Brittany in high school and all the extra curricular activities that go with it, there is very little down time, but we do squeeze in quality family time. Though my yard doesn’t reflect it, I love to work in the garden and am a big supporter of the Arts and live theater. I love all types of music, but partial to the “hair bands” & classic rock.

Working mid-days and as Public Service Director for BIG 102.1 for the last 18 years has been one of the most fulfilling opportunities of my life.
