I’m Tuscaloosa born and bred and couldn’t imagine living anywhere that doesn’t include ‘Roll Tide’ as a standard salutation. I began my career in radio in 1997 as an account executive before becoming a morning show host in 2006. I met my husband Perry, who works in law enforcement, while being arrested on suspicion of robbing a bank. Not really. We met at the lake through a mutual friend and have been married for fifteen years. Together we have three beautiful boys (one whom I must share with my good friend and his ex-wife), two doggies, four cats and seven ducks. In addition to spending time with my family, my passions are reading, exploring and photographing abandoned buildings, genealogy research and gaming.
