Who says you can't do anything with a degree in drama?! But I never dreamed it'd be from behind a microphone in a room with nobody in it! After college, being jobless and too timid to audition for shows in the big city, I was rather regurgitated from NYC. I returned to my hometown of Massena, NY, where I got a part-time job at a deli counter. One day a customer (she did news at the local radio station) suggested I do an early-morning internship with her. Not being an early riser or a news hound (I neither watched the news norread the paper), I fought the idea for 2 weeks. But faith in God told me He WAS in favor of the path, so I took the step and called. Four months later there was a small 3" mention in the paper that said a brand new radio station would be signing on in Canton, NY. They wanted a small number of "generalists" (employees who could operate in all facets of radio, from sales to writing copy and on-air work). Because I was being trained at a union station, my scope of "expertise" only went as far as sitting down at a table in a room with a stand-up microphone...and reading the news! But Karen St. Hilaire, my radio mentor, took me through the process of making a demo tape, and, as the Lord would have it, I got the job. My husband and I have been in Rochester 18 years. We spend our summers restoring our 1920's home (a room a year) and our winters planning for summer. I have way more hobbies than there are time for, from biking and jogging to voice lessons to reading to cross-stitch to cooking. I finally worked up the nerve to audition, and have been in a handful of shows, most recently in Mercury Opera Theatre's "La Boheme." I'm tickled to be able to wake you up mornings, and to meet you on the phone and out and about at events. Thanks for choosing Legends!
