I was one of those people who made their living having fun by doing something they totally enjoyed. As far back as high school, I was hooked when I won a contest as “Miss Christmas Seal” then proceeded to do commercials for the Lung Association. That was my beginning and for over 35 years I had the distinct pleasure of reacting to an audience whether on the radio, TV, as an emcee or just performing at many community service events. Whether interviewing Sean Hannity or Kevin Bacon, meeting the Beach Boys, Madonna, Phil Collins, Eddie Van Halen or even singing harmony with Carly Simon, I was having fun. Climbing the highest mountain in New Hampshire or making truffles at a chocolate factory for my TV magazine show, I was having fun. I still have a love affair with the radio and the people that listen.
