I am one of the newest voices to WJBC.  Although I joined the broadcast crew in April 2018, radio has been a jump back to a dream come true.    
Born and raised in Washington, D.C., I worked in several jobs including as a technician/park ranger with the White House tour program.  I found my way into radio during my college days at Norfolk State University in Virginia in the late 70’s. The broadcasting bug bit again in the early 80’s leading to a grave yard shift on a radio program in Maryland while starting a career in insurance operations.   Time flies when you’re having fun.  After nearly 37 years in insurance and living in Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, Colorado, and twice in Bloomington, Illinois, I retired and started my radio career again with WJBC on Sunday mornings.
I have five boys all with college degrees and six grandchildren.
