Radio DJ. College professor. Mom. Host of "Because I Said So". A single working mom of two lovely little boys (2 and 7), I'm curious about the people, places and things that make up the world around us. I love working out and spending time with my boys; and I am as likely to tear up a karaoke stage as to deliver a dynamic lecture in the classroom. I am also the Associate Professor of Communication and Media Arts at SUNY Genesee, and a SUNY Chancellors Award winning educator. A lifelong WNYer, born and raised in Cheektowaga, I now live back with my parents and my kids. I've been on the radio in Buffalo since the 90s and am known to change hair colors frequently.
