PURE MICHIGAN! I'm so glad to be back in my home state! I started out of CK105 in Flint and, man, was I AWFUL. From there I worked at 92.1 The Edge in East Lansing and Wings 103.1 in Lapeer. My first Detroit gig was Z-Rock followed by 102.7 The Bear with Ted Nugent: talk about fun! Ted was hilarious and so great to fight with in the studio. When Ted took his show to his house and out of Detroit, things got a little less lively, so I took a job at WMMR in Philadelphia.
In Philly, I met my husband and we had our daughter, Mackenzie. I left WMMR and went to work part-time for WYSP while being home with our daughter. When Mackenzie turned four, we moved to Washington DC and I worked for DC101... also a riot. Washington DC is beautiful! There is nothing like the Cherry Blossom festival: simply amazing. We checked out museums and took ghost tours: the city is incredible.
A few years later, I started working for WRNR in Annapolis. I love the Annapolis vibe and the amazing people that populate Maryland's capitol. While with WRNR, my husband and I had our son, Jake, and I worked from home as WRNR's Digital Content Manager.
If I may tell you what you already know, Jay Towers is good people. When I found out I was going to be Jay's co-host, I literally screamed like I'd won the lottery. This is the funnest "job" I have ever had. Jay is a BLAST and he's also genuine, decent, a hard worker and also family oriented.... all values I hold in the highest respect... just please, don't tell him I said that... I like to keep him guessing.
The ship evacuation drill happens just before leaving port. Chelsea and I saw people in the hall wearing life vests, so we put ours on. Turns out, you do not need to wear the vests to the drill. We felt like noobs when the Disney staff politely told us we could leave the vests in our rooms. BTW, I took a sweet selfie of myself wearing my vest. Alex, I’ll take cruise noobs for a thousand.
IRENE: The head of the spa services… LOVED HER. I love her more after we get massages and mani/pedis. They have A TON of ridiculously amazing services in the Disney Spas including a seaweed wrap. I asked if Jay could have this and I could take pictures. Irene said, “Yes, if I can have copy.” IT’S ON AT THE DISNEY VISTA SPA.
LESLIE: The assistant cruise director… LOVED HER. She was smart and funny and totally top of her game. Leslie has been handling Disney cruises for eight years. She helps bring the fun for all ages.
JAMES: The Hotel Director… James is from the UK and has a HOT accent. He also makes a mean towel monkey and you never know what James will leave in your room... but for sure, you'll enjoy it.
