Assistant Program Director / Music Director
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). After moving to Orlando to become a part of the Z family in 2012, our family grew! Kiefer married sweet Clara in 2016 and gave us our first grandbaby Wilhelmina Joy in 2017, and Phoebe married Andre Woods in 2018. Our most recent God hug was in March 2019 when Phoebe gave birth to Virgil Lee. That sweet one is named after my grandpa/hero.
I started in radio at KVNE and 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. My career in Tyler lasted 14 years… until God called our family to work here at the Z in O’town!
As much as I enjoy doing on-air work, my passion is working behind the scenes. As Dean O’Neal’s Assistant Program Director, I LOVE coming to work and being a part of an incredible team.
