A native of Las Vegas and former professional singer and HR recruiter, she began her radio career at KDWN in Las Vegas in 1998. She moved across town to KXNT in 1999, initially as a fill-in host, weekend host, and then co-host of a morning drive show from 2001 to 2006. She hosted her own show at KDWN from 2007 to 2012, before leaving for a radio job in Los Angeles.

After returning from LA, she hosted an evening show on KBET in Las Vegas for two years before returning to KXNT to host morning drive. On September 19, 2017, her show was cancelled by KXNT days after she wrote a controversial Facebook post criticizing same-sex adoption, saying that only "married people of the opposite sex" should be allowed to adopt children.[1]
