I'm pleased to say I made my way to D.C. from Hampton, Va., by way of I-64, I-295 and I-95 -- and I did it "old school," no GPS, just a map.

I've always been the "talker" in my family, although I would say I share that title with my mama. In high school, I was voted "most talkative," so I decided to embrace that "title" and make it a career.

My first radio job was at "Z104" in Va. Beach while a sophomore in college at Old Dominion University. I've worked at a wide variety of formats, I've been a side-kick on morning shows, done character voices, commercial voice overs, a news anchor and now I report traffic in the Nation's Capital.

At first, learning D.C. traffic was a mind-boggling experience. Doing traffic is certainly not boring. It's a challenge. My 'mission' is to get you from point A to point B and offer alternative routes when and where I can.

In addition to my radio duties, I have been fortunate to be part of the Fox 5 Morning News team for the past 10 years. The pressure of doing traffic (combined with applying lip gloss) keeps me busy to say the least! I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my job.

In my free time, I'm the Vice President of the Washington/Baltimore AFTRA local. I'm all about soaking up the sun, whether I'm at the beach or poolside, I like banana ice cream even though I often have to share some with my beagle Bailey who I think is the best dog in the world. If you're a dog owner you understand completely. Aren't all dogs the best dogs in the world?
