I have a dual role at Townsquare Media Utica – I’m the Brand Manager for Lite 98.7 and the Digital Managing Editor for our group. I am a native of Michigan and have hosted radio shows throughout the country from Indiana to Illinois and New York. For the past eight years, I have lived in West Utica and have grown to enjoy the people, the culture and lifestyle of Central New York. I enjoy weekend travel and road trips and am devoted to animal welfare causes. I’m also an avid amateur cook who eats way too much of my own cooking.
