Orlando is a beautiful place! Where else can you be a tourist in your own town?!
I spent most of my life on a ranch in East Texas. Our family ran cattle, horses, and any other “critter” that my cousins and I wanted to take under our wing. I love the wide open spaces. I imagine that our local beaches here in Central Florida appeal to me because of that.
In 1991 I met my soon to be husband in Estes Park, Colorado. Matt was a farm boy from Iowa, and we had a long distance relationship as he was attending Iowa State and I was at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. We married in 1992 and had Kiefer (1994) and Phoebe Rose (1998). My family is my happy place. We play a lot of games and watch a lot of movies. Kiefer is a worship guitarist who wants to study Theology in college, and Phoebe Rose is a fastpitch softball pitcher. Crazy how two kids in the same family can be so different and so amazing!
I started in radio at KVNE/KGLY in Tyler, Texas. What began as a part-time announcing job just to get me out of the house when the kiddos were little turned into being full-time music director and mid-day announcer after 9 years.
In September of 2012, I met Tate Luck and Dean O’Neal at a Christian Music Broadcasters convention, and the rest, they say, is history! I LOVE this new Z family. They are so passionate about excellence in everything they do and they love serving Orlando by sharing the love of Jesus!
