This year, I’m celebrating my 13th year in New Jersey radio! After growing up in Central NJ (yes, there IS a CNJ), I headed to college in New England and embarked on my radio career in CT, MA, PA, and Washington, DC. Then, in 2007, I made the move back home to New Jersey and set my roots down in Ocean County. You can find me out and about all around the Shore enjoying our great parks, beaches and trails with my dog Scooter, flying WOBM’s very own drone, “Skycam 927”, finding the spookiest places to ghost hunt for Ocean County Paranormal, and rooting for the home team at FirstEnergy Park! Join me every weekday afternoon from 3-8pm as I help you wrap up your Ocean County workday with news, weather, traffic, and Ocean County’s Best Variety!
