KEYS TO SUCCESS: Persistence, tenacity, and being true to myself.

MENTORS: My former Program Director, Jim McGuinn; I respect his business acumen and calm demeanor. Also, Prseton Elliot for teaching me how to be an on-air personality.

LEADERSHIP TIP: Stay focused, be in the moment, and eavesdrop on hallway conversations.

HOW/WHY CHOSE FIELD: A colleague suggested I use my amazing voice to do voiceovers and I took his advice. I was hired to do radio based on my voiceover resume.
