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.

Researchers out of Michigan State discovered only 5% of us know how to properly wash our hands. They discovered this after watching closet to 4,000 people in public restrooms.
They define "proper" as washing your hands at least 15 to 20 seconds to kill the germs.
33% didn't use soap and 10% just walked out without washing at all. Men were the biggest offenders.
***I'm not sure what grosses me out more in this study, though, the 10% that don't wash their hands, or the 12 college students that watched 4,000 people in public bathrooms.
