As the youngest member to hit the airwaves on the "95 KSJ Breakfast Club", I spent my first two years at KSJ pouring coffee and running errands for the staff & occasionally making an on-air appearance or two with Dan & Shelby. Hoping that someday I'd be a part of the number ONE morning show on the Gulfcoast. In 2012 all that pouring coffee paid off, with me joining the Breakfast Club. I fell in love with broadcasting when I was only 7 years old. I said the Pledge of Allegiance with Dan & Shelby (somewhere that audio is still hanging around one of our studios). At 17, I attended a high school leaders community event, that our very own Program Director, Bill Black, was attending. I announced to Bill that I was going to work for him and 95KSJ someday... the rest is history. I'm now 20 and I firmly believe I have the best job EVER, and it keeps getting better everyday. You can catch me stirring up trouble on the 95KSJ Breakfast Club with Dan & Shelby throughout the week!
From time to time I get to side-line report from Jags football games!

My playlist changes weekly... I have just shy of 5,000 songs on my iPod and it's constantly growing. Here are the top 5 songs I'm jamming to this week!
1. True Believers - Darius Rucker
2. El Cerrito Place - Kenny Chesney
3. Say Goodnight - Eli Young Band
4. I Ain't Your Mama - Maggie Rose Band
5. Hard To Love - Lee Brice
Newtown's heartbreak has a lot of us asking, "What can I do?" Thinking about this, Ann Curry took to social media and asked people to imagine what would happen if all of us committed to 26 acts of kindness to honor each life lost in Newtown.
So I did....
Here are a few I've done so far:
1. Buy a stranger lunch
2. Feed the homless
3. Donate can goods
4. Buy Christmas dinner for a family in need
5. Reward a deserving family
6. Share inspirational quotes
7. Leave drink money on vending machine
8. Leave generous tip
9. Make someone's wish come true
10. Give a Christmas tree to someone who does not have one
Here are some photos throughout the journey: CLICK HERE
I'm so grateful that through this, other 95KSJ staff members and people of the community have been so willing and generous to help complete these acts.
Thank you all, and I'm looking forward to honoring more lives in 2013 because my list isn't done yet!
