A newly-engaged working mom of two (soon to be three) lovely little boys, I'm curious about the people, places and things that make up the world around us. I love working out and spending time with my boys; and I am as likely to tear up a karaoke stage as to deliver a dynamic lecture in the classroom. I am also a former Associate Professor of Communication and Media Arts at SUNY Genesee, and a SUNY Chancellor's Award-winning educator. A lifelong WNYer, born and raised in Cheektowaga, I now live with my fiance and our kids. I've been on the radio in Buffalo since the 90s and am known to change hair colors frequently.
