BELOVED RADIO VOICE
I spent 25 years on the air at Magic 106.7 in Boston and along the way, I had the incredible experience of playing my own songs on the radio. But what I love more than anything else in the world is interviewing women who are doing great things with their lives, despite every obstacle in their path. Way back in 1993, I created the award-winning Exceptional Women radio show and now, I'm diving into The Story Behind Her Success podcast series. I hope you'll check out the show. Let's stay connected because inspiring stories can change lives. If you need my long bio, click here: my long bio And here's my short bio
