8.     How long have you been in your current career?

  • August 2014 will actually mark my tenth year in radio! Time flies when you’re having fun! I am so fortunate to have been able to see all different aspects of the radio industry in my various roles.

7.     What do you like most about it?

  • Being able to talk to listeners everyday is the favorite thing about my job! I love hearing about people’s days, lives, families and even their problems. It’s always great to be able to entertain, inform, educate and connect with people!

6.     What are your biggest challenges?

  • Even with a decade under my belt I’m still considered “The new kid in town”. Radio pros have been doing this job for decades because it’s such an amazing job so my biggest challenge is working hard to fill the big shoes the people who came before me left. I try each day to challenge myself to learn from them while building my own identity.

5.     What do you like most about living/working on Cape Cod?

  • Everything!! I live in the upper cape (Pocasset) I spend most of my work days in the mid cape (Hyannis) and spend my weekends dj-ing and having fun with friends on the outer cape (Provincetown)…no matter where I am on the Cape I find something fun to do all year round!

4.     When not on the air, what would people find you doing?

  • I’m at the gym. I try and go everyday and I try to never do the same routine too long where I get bored of it. I love all types of exercise so if I’m lifting weights in the gym I might be at yoga, pilates, boxing, or just jogging on the canal with my dogs. If I’m not in the gym, I’m in the kitchen! Growing up in an Italian family you can’t help but get the urge to get in the kitchen and cook up something delicious with enough to feed the neighborhood.

3.     Is there an interesting fact that no one knows about you?

  • I am a certified trapeze artist. During a trip to New York City several years back, my friends and I thought it would be fun to try a class. Apparently, I was meant to run away with the circus because I was so good at trapeze that I took the whole course, passed the very scary final test and from time to time, will still work on some tricks.

2.     What’s your favorite town on Cape?

  • If I had to choose, it would be Sandwich. My grandparents lived there when I was growing up and I just have so many great memories there! Plus I really understand and appreciate the town’s motto  Post tot Naufracia Portus “After so many shipwrecks, a haven”

1.       What is your favorite quote?

  • “Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane, by those who could not hear the music” – Friedrich Nietzsche
