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.
CAPTAIN THORD: (how great a name is that?) LOVED HIM! Captain Thord came and talked with us about the cruise and said how far up we went depended on the seals. Once there are more than we can navigate past, we will turn around. Disney is big not disturbing the wildlife; I love that. Chelsea was falling all over herself as she was super impressed to meet the ship’s captain. She wants a tour of the bridge B.A.D. Jay I took a picture with Captain Thord (left) but we made Chelsea take the picture.... just to torture her a bit. We are so awesome to hang out with.
JACO: The Director of Port Adventures… (pronounced “Ya-Coo”) I LOVED HIM! Lol… I know, I say that a lot about Disney staff. Jaco told us about the Disney Port adventures and said his favorite was taking a plane over glaciers to get to a place that had the best ginger snaps he ever tasted.. and you may see a bear or two. Jay did not seem into this excursion.
PIERRE: The Director of Food Services… Pierre is French and yummy. Jay mentioned to Pierre that he was Italian and I think Pierre was annoyed by this. I reminded Jay after that the French (as a whole) stink. Having said that, I LOVED PIERRE. I took a cruise years ago and said that I would never take another because we all got sick and felt like germs were everywhere. That IS NOT THE CASE on Disney cruises. They do a ton of things to help cut down on germ exposure… seriously, Disney has it TOGETHER on the germ factor. They totally pay attention to detail here.
