I'm a mom to three great kids and two big dogs. When I'm not working or helping with homework, I like to run (keeps me sane) or read (mostly in the bathroom). If I could eat any food, every day, it would be sushi. And Big Macs. And chocolate ice cream. And also Thin Mints. I grew up in Brooklyn, so that's where the accent and the attitude come from. I moved here in 1993, not long after I graduated from college - and I've been here ever since. I've only been doing this whole radio thing for a couple of years - so it goes to show that you can always chart a new path for yourself - no matter how old you are!
