Stuff that matters~family, friends, faith.

Stuff that don’t~designer stuff, the latest, coolest anything. Who decides that anyway?

Favorites~a good song, a good drink, a good back rub.

Totally unfavorites~arrogance & hatred, liars and "dig me's", people that pee on the seat. I hate that!

About work~
I am so very fortunate to work in radio, and I work with some really great people. Who wouldn’t love playin’ music and talkin’ all day for a livin’?

When it comes to music, for me it’s really all about the song. Bluegrass, old time gospel and country. Stuff by Hank, Merle, Patsy and Willie. I dig Johnny Cash and Radney Foster, Asleep at the Wheel, Keith Urban and Lee Ann Womack, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church and Possum Holler.

Music has been a part of my life since I was a little girl and, I have my beautiful parents to thank for that. I hope the pure, emotionally raw joy I get out of singing, writing and performing is obvious.

There’s nothing like sitting outside in the early morning, on a peachy summer day, listening to the birds sing, and takin’ in the sweet summer smell of lilac, honeysuckle and wisteria.

There’s nothin’ like the hugs I get from my kids.

Because nothing, nothing means more to me than the people I love. 

I sincerely hope that I’m an inspiration and a blessing to others. So many have been that for me.

Be an organ donor
Be enthusiastic.
Be compassionate.
Be the difference.

I knew it was going to be hard to say goodbye but, as my final day at WAYZ approaches I am finding that a simple seven letter word is turning out to be much more difficult than I could ever have imagined.

They say that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. With the exception of those two weeks I spent scrubbing tubs at a bath house, I have truly never worked. I’ve waited tables, sang with a band (Possum Holler), mastered the art of the curly q on an ice cream cone and, I’ve loved everything about working at 104.7 WAYZ; meeting people, making friends, talkin’ and playin’ music for a living. What an amazing opportunity. Everyone should be so lucky.

When I sign off on Friday, I’ll tuck my headphones away and, find a place on my sofa with a good book and lots of blankets. I am hoping to experience some healing of sorts; gaining strength and, perhaps a few pounds. Part of me thinks that my battle against scleroderma is just beginning. Am I just a little bit frightened? Yes, I am. Maybe more than a little; but, I am armed with faith and hope. I am ready to rage against this rare, killer disease. And, that is just one more great opportunity.

I take with me many cherished moments and will hold so many of you in my heart forever. Thank you for being a part of my journey. And remember~

To the world you might be just one person but, to one person, you might be the world. Wishin’ ya blue skies and happy trails.

One more time we get to write how much we love- you, your voice, your spirit, your heart, your sense of humor, your love of a certain Aussie, your positivity,your compassion, your beauty, and the list could go on! You know you have touched so many hearts and minds by doing what you love! Your soulful yet chipper voice will be missed on the radio, however we are all still blessed that you are still on this Earth with us! We may not be able to hear you everyday, but a little piece of you is with everyone you have ever talked to, played a song for, prayed for, or hugged. Keep your faith, prayers for recovery, and God bless!

We will miss your sweet voice. I remember years ago the Concert you did at the Berkeley County Youth Fair in Martinsburg for Cancer Research for us. You were amazing and will always be in our hearts. Sending prayers and Love.
