You have been the former host of the sports talk radio on 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore and have hosted your own Fantasy Football Show on MASN called “Fantasy Blitz,” and are now an update anchor and talk show host for ESPN New York. Walk us through your incredible journey so far.
I grew up playing almost every sport possible, but really excelled at football and fell in love with the game. I played flag football collegiality, and then women’s professional football from 1998 to 2002. I quarterbacked for the Miami Fury and the Florida Stingrays during those 5 years. I majored in Communications at the University of South Florida, and combining my major with my love of sport, and the fact that I played professional football opened the door for me in sports broadcasting. My sports talk radio career led to opportunities on TV, podcasts, and much more with ESPN. I’m thrilled with where my career has taken me.
