Winning passes to a Sonic Session (not unlike the KGSR Music Lounges) from my favorite station when I was 13 made me decide to work in radio and I never looked back. This decision led me from the suburb of Philadelphia where I grew up to Boston, where I attended Emerson College and immersed myself in their student-run WERS. Shortly after graduation, I accepted my first full-time job in Spokane and met my husband there. Now we are both ecstatic about establishing roots here in Austin.

I've admired KGSR from afar for a long time, so it is an honor and a dream come true to work here. I'm looking forward to seeing you at Lounges, Blues on the Green, or, you know, any of the thousands of places we could bump into each other watching live acts around town. After all, to quote my favorite band (No Doubt), "Music is life flowing through, is it not?"
