I am a happy, life loving mother. I love music and supporting our fine local talent. I love animals so much I am a vegetarian. I am grateful to be part of the RTRFM family as it is an excellent organisation. I care for the world and humanity, which is something I see in RTRFM.

How did you become involved?

Whilst studying at Central Tafe broadcasting for radio myself and another student was asked by our lecturer and former Morning Magazine presenter Danae Gibson if we would be interested in joining the Burning Down The House Collective.  I had a deep interest in woman’s issues so the show was perfect for me. Not long after that I joined the Rocking The Roots collective and am still a member of it. I am also on  an overnight program called Uplate.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

Oh that is a hard one, only 5 albums… Um, ok, well anything from James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Mat. McHugh: Love Come Save Me, Ash Grunwald: Troubles Door, Saritah: Gratitude. So hard to say as there are so many that I would take. Depends on the day really, but for today this is what I would pick??????

What is the best thing about being involved with the station?

That we are all real people that deal with the real issues that are happening here or that are actually important to the world. We are animal & environmentally friendly. We have a right to say or play what we wish (within our show’s structure) and we have a big heart…. The diversity of the station with all the show’s and presenters are original and unique and I am very proud to be involved in such an excellent organisation that gives everyone the opportunity to have a say and is willing to support the under dog!!!!

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?

Well I have two. Both are recent. 1st was went a guest accidently knocked all the power out in the studio and everything went completely dead. 2nd was when I was doing an overnight shift and it was 3:45am and I could have sworn I heard someone calling out my name…. Oh My Goodness I freaked out, the next presenter hadn’t shown up yet and I was like, is there someone in the kitchen……. AHHHHHH!!!!! Then when the next presenter did come into the studio I screamed like a little girl and scared us both!!!!!!

If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?

I would have to say The Mag because I got into radio to bring current affairs to light. Breakfast & Drivetime seem like lots of fun.

What do you do in real life?


I am a single parent and a student at Challenger Institute Of Technology.
