Helloooo! Welcome to MY PAGE! My own little chunk of the World Wide Web. It's very exciting.
My career started while in college at a little Top 40 station in Clare, Michigan (the Gateway to the North). Not only was I a weekend DJ, but I was also the station janitor. No kidding! I did what was needed to break into the biz, even if it included scrubbing toilets.
After Clare, it was on to Saginaw, Michigan, a decade in Kalamazoo (yes, there really is...), north to Grand Rapids, and then south to Greenville, where I'm excited to take over afternoons on MY 102.5!!!
I met the love of my life in Kalamazoo at a wine festival. Kelcey told me on that first night: "You'll never meet a girl in Kalamazoo." Apparently not... that night! But I won her over with my charm, wit, and a great deal of wine. We married in September of 2001. She's my best friend.
Born: Troy, Michigan

Kids: Two! Charlie, born in 2007, and Kellen, born in 2011
We've all been there. Diet; workout; lose weight; gain it all back.
Here's why, according to Fox News
The wrong mindset: We have not accepted that eating healthy is a life long commitment. This is why fad diets never work, because you can't sustain that way of eating over the long term
Lack of sleep: Fatigue is not your friend. Fatigue makes us crave junk food, which is why experts say get 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night
Stress: Here comes that word again... cortisol. That's the hormone that helps us function under pressure, but when it kicks into overdrive, it also kicks up our cravings for fatty foods.
Medical condition: Thyroid disorder can mess with your weight, along with menopause, andropause, and andrenal fatigue. Your physician can help you out here.
