Hey there! I'm the midday news anchor for the Dennis and Judi Show on NJ 101.5. You may have heard my name before as I have co-hosted a number of morning shows on rock radio stations up and down the Jersey Shore as well as New York City. I also dabbled in business for a while at The Wall Street Journal Radio Network. While I am a Staten Island girl, I've been living in the Garden State (near the beach) for almost 20 years. I have a teenage son (yikes!). I'm a die-hard Bruce Springsteen fan. I love the New York Mets (my dad was a lefty relief pitcher for the Mets in the 1960s). I love animals, (especially my cat Gingerbread, my rabbit, Shadow and an adorable bloodhound named Esther). I enjoy going to concerts (I love live music). I'm a beach girl through and through (you will find me there a lot). I enjoy watching The Brick Memorial Marching Mustangs in action and doing the announcing for their home shows. I love the color purple, anything coconut-scented and a good red wine. Italian food (my heritage) and seafood are my faves. I'll travel anywhere. Just don't ever ask me to attend a Yankees game or go camping...the answer will always be no. LOL. That's me in a nutshell! Talk to you on the radio!
