Production Director

About Me

I joined the family at Hope FM in August, 2020. I was born and raised in Mount Vernon, Ohio. My parents have been in the radio business since before I was born. I loved it so much I had to join in! I started doing radio when I was just ten years old at the local radio station, WNZR. I majored in Journalism and Media Production as well as theater at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in May 2020. I love radio, musical theater, Spider-Man, Star Wars, and anything Disney. I cannot thank God enough for all that He has done for me. He has placed some amazing Christian influences in my life.

My Job

I get to have fun producing the on-air elements. I'm in charge of most of the stuff you hear on the air. You can also hear my show weekdays from 2:00- 6:00 PM

Hometown

Fun Fact

My parents manage the radio station where I went to college. I practically grew up there!

 

Favorite Bible Verse

Ephesians 4:29. “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

 

When not on the radio, you’ll find me

Watching Netflix, having a Zoom call with my friends back home or maybe singing on a stage!

 

Favorite Hope FM Song

My favorite song right now is Together by For King & Country ft. Tori Kelly and Kirk Franklin. I am a HUGE FK&C fan, but this song is at the top of my list. The ending has some of the most poignant lyrics that I have heard in a long time, and it reminds me of how we should be in the body of Christ. Every time I hear it I tear up!

 

“Together we are dangerous

Together with our differences 

Together we are bolder, braver, stronger”

Favorite Food

Mac & Cheese, or anything with cheese, really. I also love Chocolate.
