meet the personalities
Do you ever wake up and think, “How did I end up here?” Coming to DC and joining with the morning show, I think that a lot. To be more accurate, my thoughts are usually, “How on earth does a human function this early in the morning?” But then I come to and realize what an immense blessing and pleasure it is to hang out with you each morning, I caffeinate, and all is well in the world. You’re worth it.
Like Jerry, I was born in Southern California and love me some sunshine and nature. Mountains, trees, swimming, and hiking are pretty much my definition of a perfect day. However, I spent most of my life in the Midwest so I’ve learned to live with flat lands and cold winters. Needless to say, the DMV is such a gift. Beyond the natural world, my heart is for storytelling, coffee, Jesus, and my family. Not necessarily in that order. I am married to a handsome soldier and am a hot mess mom to a million kids (4, I have 4 kids).
Growing up I was an actress and competitive public speaker. But I was also terribly lost. I didn’t truly find Jesus until I was in my 20s after a really dark “testimony-building” season. That journey has planted in my heart a desire to remind others that they are loved and not alone, with a willingness to go first in sharing my mess, in order to demonstrate the power of redeeming Grace.
I so look forward to getting to know this wonderful area, all its wonderful people, and to be that friend you look forward to hanging out with over coffee each morning.
