Biography

Starting out as a community volunteer in 1995 for WNTI was the beginning of what is now my full time career here at Centenary College.  Music and radio are my passion so it’s easy to get up at 4:am Monday through Friday and entertain the listeners on air from 6:am to 9:am.  After that, the majority of my day is spent raising money and awareness for WNTI.  I represent WNTI as member of the Warren County Regional Chamber of Commerce and the United Way Women’s Leadership Council .  Being a member of community organizations offers me the opportunity to partner with other businesses which in turn generates revenue for WNTI.  Nights and weekends are filled with public appearances and events I emcee, all to keep WNTI in the public eye. 

Each year we organize two on air membership drives as our largest source of revenue along with a three day summer music festival, sell underwriting, host WNTI nights at various theaters, and sell WNTI merchandise as many other events.  It’s non-stop, fun-filled hard work and I wouldn’t want it any other way!
