It is hard to believe that I have been doing this morning show with Lou Russo for 15-plus years! Many of you have been hearing stories about my boys, who have grown up with me talking about them on the air. Christopher is now driving, and Ben is a professional musician, performing in multiple bands. As always, my priority remains my kids. I may have been born in NYC, but I have spent most of my life as a Jersey Girl. When I'm not shuttling my son to a gig or imparting my driving wisdom on the boys, you can most likely find me walking or running the boardwalks between Asbury Park and Point Pleasant Beach. I am also a big fan of supporting area businesses and love to shop in locally-owned stores and frequent locally-owned restaurants and coffee houses.
