A Little About Me
In 2008, after 20+ years in traditional media hosting radio shows around the country in cities like Chicago and Philly, I traded in the microphone for the diaper bag when I returned from maternity leave only to learn that my position was eliminated. While the rest of the world was hit with a financial crisis, I struggled with my own personal crises: I was unemployed, overweight and lost in the land of mommy bloggers. Picking myself up, I went digital while hosting Better Philly on WPHL 17, sharing my struggles suffering from postpartum depression, life and loneliness in Philly and the usual ins-and-outs that every new mom experiences.
My traditional media background paved the way for success with my brand Real Mom Media and the RealityMoms! Within a year, nearly 200,000 unique monthly website views and a successful social media following, I became a sought after media magnet, featured nationally on Good Morning America, Dr. Phil, Anderson Cooper, the Katie Couric Show, Dr. Oz, Redbook, The Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda, The Talk, Fox and Friends and even The Newlywed Game. (*Please refrain from snickering.)
With all that on my plate, my husband got a job in California, meaning yet another cross-country move. Lost again, I found my place at San Francisco’s KOIT 96.5, where I’m now running the Bay Area’s top morning show. Want to know more about me? Follow my regular Facebook Lives!
When not in front of the mic, at the sports complex with one of my kids, on an island or a grocery store run, I am obsessed with adult coloring.
