I grew up in the Texas Panhandle. It’s home! I love the people and I absolutely love this community. Amarillo has a big heart! I started my radio career when I walked into the Broadcasting Department of WTAMU. I have worked in Amarillo radio for (insert garbled language here). I love spending time with my son going to museums and talking about history, and dealing with all his teenage quirks. He's also a music lover and he loves to tell me how bad my taste in music is half the time. When I have extra time, I love reading a good book, however I need some great book suggestions so send them my way. I will admit though, my Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ binging addiction does take away from my reading, and it has a habit of completely stealing my Sundays. Thanks for spending your time with me, I look forward to getting to know you more.
