That sounds so impersonal. Let’s get personal for a moment. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a native Detroiter…and proud of it.
I was born here. I lived on Detroit’s lower east side for 25 years (Ashland Avenue). I graduated from Servite High School. I graduated from Michigan State University. I’m married to a man I met at MSU…We worked together in the kitchen at Shaw Hall.
He is a history buff, and an expert on the American Civil War. He loves history so much that we live in a house built in 1856. (We’ve got the plumbing to prove it). Our family vacations usually involve touring some battlefield. My favorite is Antietam. We have two wonderful little boys.
Next to God and my family, WWJ is my life. It is a wonderfully vibrant and exciting place to work…always something new, unexpected, sometimes frightening, sometimes funny. Always challenging! You can hear me Monday through Friday from 5am to 10am.
