My radio career began during my junior year of college, working part time for KFRG-FM. I was burning the midnight oil as an overnight Board OP as well as juggling voicetracking, producing commercial spots and working in the promotions department as part of the street team.After graduating with a BA in Mass Communications from California State University in 2015, I was brought on full-time wearing plenty of different hats. I've worked on-air as the weekend talent, to afternoon drive, to the morning show. I've worked in the digital department writing nationally syndicated content, to producing and editing station videos, to handling social media accounts that have 90,000+ followers combined.I've hosted sporting events, including working as the In-Game Host of the indoor soccer team Ontario Fury and concerts, including Coastal Country Jam in Huntington Beach that had 10,000+ attendees. I've also been fortunate enough to speak to multiple college campuses, reflecting on my career path and giving advice to students as they get ready to transition into the working world.I was the most recent recipient of the Rusty Walker Scholarship in February of 2020, where thee full-time radio employees are chosen to experience an all expenses paid trip to attend Country Radio Seminar in Nashville. I was also a nominee for Country Aircheck's Major Market Personality of the Year and became a member of the Country Music Association in 2020.
