What got you into radio?
I originally wanted to be a High School counselor. I got a D in psychology (hope my kids don't read this) so I decided to try something else! While in college I found myself on the speech and debate team. I discovered I liked working with my voice. I've always loved music. Hummm...what could I do with voice and music? DJ! I changed my major and here I am.
What's the last thing you spent $100 on?
A CPR class. I finally got certified, wish I would have done it a long time ago.
Tell us a random fact about yourself.
I was a Mexican Ballet Folklorico dancer for 20 years. I almost ran off to dance with one of the best groups in Mexico. It was my senior year of college and I decided to finish up my degree instead. Now my son and daughter dance. Get this...their instructor was a dancer in the group I wanted to run off with!!!! He now lives in the Bay Area and has his school here. Talk about a small world!
Can you do a cartwheel?
Yes I can, the splits too! For now anyway, ask me again next year.
Favorite sentimental quote.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift...that's why it's called the present.
Secret guaranteed weeping movie.
I'm a huge Barbara Streisand fan. I've got to go with Funny Girl and The Way We Were.
What do you consider a vacation?
Staying in bed all day on a Sunday with the newspaper, my favorite books and videos. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served on a tray with a rose and champagne. Disneyland ALWAYS works too!
Where were you born?
Castro Valley, CA
What do you cook best?
Mexican food. All of my dear mom's recipes.

UPDATE: YOU’RE FIRED
Jennifer Lopez is denying a German tabloid claim that she got a maid fired for requesting an autograph. J.Lo says she did no such thing. “C’mon thought you knew me better than this…Would never get anyone fired over an autograph.” Apparently the maid didn’t innocently ask for an autograph. She actually “barged” into J.Lo’s room unannounced and security kicked her out. Hotel management told Lopez the maid wasn’t fired, but was just transferred to a different property.
