Hometown: Bristol, CT

 

My Radio Story: After an extended break from theater (because of college and starting my career as a high school teacher), I got back into performing in 2014. Over the course of my performances, I met Johnny O, and I was fortunate enough to have been a guest on Backstage a few times. When Johnny O announced he was leaving, my name somehow ended up on the list of possible replacements. And now, here I am.

 

Hobbies: Travel (though I hate flying), theater, reading, watching movies, and mastering unhealthy amounts of useless trivia

 

Little known fact about me: I once won a school election despite not voting for myself.

 

Favorites: My family (especially my niece and nephew), Italian food, Disney, superhero movies, science fiction

 

My 2 cents: “It is what it is.” In other words, control what you can and don’t worry about the rest.
