Smart AND Sassy? On-Air person full of ideas
  • October 16, 2014

Hey there!  SO glad you stopped by to check me out – hope I don’t disappoint you.

For the last 6 years, I’ve been the host/producer/etc. of Prima Donna’s a classic rock/hits show at WMUA and having a great time doing it.  During this time I’ve also worked as a Production intern with 100.7F WZLX (Classic Rock), and overnight board op with 103.3FM WODS (Classic Hits, flipped to Top 40).

I’m comfortable using Protools, Audio Vault/Suite,  and Audacity, as well as the Microsoft Office programs.  I’m a graduate from The University of Massachusetts in Amherst –  as a returning student focusing on Bachelor degrees in Communications (leaning towards Media Studies) and Psychology (which always comes in handy)

In my long-ago past, I worked in food service/hospitality industry – not only can I put people at ease, but I can multi-task, and handle working in a fast-paced environment.(And can I flip a burger?  You betcha…but frankly, I got tired of going home smelling like the special of the the day)
