I began my radio career by winning a contest at age 12 on my hometown country radio station. The connection led to a radio show, where I was required to obtain a child actor's permit to legally work underage. I have worked at several small radio stations in upstate New York, leading to WGNA-FM. In 2000, I received my first national CMA nomination for Medium Market Radio Personality of the Year. In 2006, I took the crystal trophy home and was nominated again in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. In addition to hosting the daytime and Sunday Morning shows on WGNA, I host and produce the biggest Country Dance and Country Karaoke events in the Northeast.
