I began my career in radio in 1990 while attending Temple University. The university radio station WRTI sparked a life- long love for radio and broadcasting in general. I have been an on air personality with Radio One for 9 years. I host community affairs talk shows on Praise 107.9 and Boom 103.9 FM. Outside of my dedication to the field of broadcasting, I served as a high school Drama/Dance/Broadcasting teacher, theater company founder, casting director, dancer, choreographer, costume designer, director, TV producer and actress. I landed lead and/or supporting roles in August Wilson’s Fences & The Piano Lesson, Ruined by Lynn Nottage, For Colored Girls by Ntozake Shange and Purlie Victorious by Ozzie Davis just to name a few. I am also dedicated to public health; I am a certified HIV Educator who works with a STD/HIV prevention education project for African American teen girls called SIHLE (see-lay) and a STD and pregnancy prevention program for teens called Plain Talk. I am the creator and executive producer of The Hype TV show, a young adult talk show which airs on Youtube. I hope to continue to share my gifts and knowledge while continuing to learn about myself through discovering the world.
