Are you single or married? Married to my wonderful husband.
How many children do you have? I don't have any children.
Do you own a pet? Yes! He's my boy. I have a lab named "Sonny Boy".
Hobbies? Hiking in the hills with my dog, as well as music, piano, cooking and entertaining friends.
Favorite Color? The Rainbow! I know it's cheating, but I like all the colors together.
Favorite Sport? Beach volleyball.
Favorite book? "Like Water for Chocolate" - a book about love and cooking!
First appearance on KOST? Part-time in December, 1987. I was promoted to full-time on August 13, 1991.
What was your first radio job? A little station in Santa Paula, in the middle of an orange grove, called "KKBZ".
What was the worst job you ever had? I never had a bad job. I don't work at places where I'm not having fun or enjoy what I'm doing.
Most embarrassing on-air moment? At my first job in radio, the guys were real practical jokers. They replaced my regular commercials with various farm animal noises. When I went to play a commercial after finishing a song, I got a rooster crowing instead, followed by a cow and a pig!
Best experience in radio? Being able to host "Lovesongs on the KOST" every evening. I get goosebumps every night from the stories that people share with me. More specifically, Listener Appreciation Night at Disneyland! We get to meet so many listeners in one place. I'll never forget it.
If you weren't in radio, what would you be doing? Either a counselor, a TV chef on the Food Network, an animal trainer or a musician.
What advice would you give to anyone who would like to get into the business? First, ask yourself if you HAVE to do this. If your answer is yes, then do it--and let your passion drive you. You will get there!
Best artist you met/interviewed?
Michael Jackson! I met him while I was a VIP tour guide at Disneyland. I was taking a broadcast class and he allowed me to interview him for my class project. Yes, I hid my tape recorder in my purse.
Let's hear from you!
