I've been in radio for 20 years as a DJ, news & traffic reporter. I'm a big fan of country music and love playing all your favorite country songs on XL Country from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each weekday! I have lived in the Great Northwest most of my life, and I love it. There’s nothing like the people in this part of the country! We’ve got breathtaking scenery, myriad forms of recreation, amazing sunrises and sunsets…it’s the perfect place to raise a family! Rob and I have been married for almost 24 years and have 2 great kids. I have been singing since I was 5 and I love the really powerful singers (Martina McBride, Wynonna, LeAnn Rimes, etc.) and all kinds of music. Rob plays guitar and sings, as well, and we love playing together. I also enjoy relaxing at home with the family, reading, cooking, making jewelry, watching movies, and I’m always on a quest to be more organized!

Unexpected Beauty Comes Out of Idaho Wildfires
We made reservations to spend our 20th anniversary (yes, I was a child bride) at the Fall Creek Lodge and Marina on Anderson Ranch Reservoir north of Mountain Home.
Double-Dipping Isn’t As Bad As You Think
What a coincidence, I JUST watched the Seinfeld episode where George double-dips his chip, and the guy who sees him gets extremely upset, and tells George it's "like putting your whole mouth right in the dip!" How nice that Mythbusters did the work, and now we know, double-dipping really isn't as bad as we think...
How It Might Sound If I Sang The Traffic Report
I love to sing, always have, since I was five. My husband and I have a band and play around the valley, and it's funny how when people find out I do the afternoon traffic reports, they say, "Ha ha, you should sing the traffic!" So I thought this guy's take on the Frozen song "Let It Go" was hilarious...
