I’m a true Hampton Roads native and couldn’t feel more blessed to be born and raised here in Coastal Virginia. I grew up in Chesapeake, went to college in Norfolk, and currently reside in Virginia Beach, so my roots run deep for the 757! My first taste of radio was while I was interning here at Sinclair Communications while attending Old Dominion University. Around Hampton Roads you can find me on the Chesapeake Bay, at any restaurant (I’m a total foodie), local charity events, with my family, or somewhere sipping on a glass of wine or tequila. Truly there is nothing better than being able to work with the Hampton Roads community and my US1061 family!
