Hello, my friends!
I am over the moon to be a part of the morning show. I am finally living proof of that old saying, “If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.”
I was born in New York, although I call myself a Ken Caryl girl… A Chatfield graduate to be exact. And my many adventures have brought me everywhere from Europe to California. The stage of Shakespeare’s Globe, to the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. And after years of soul searching, two broken engagements, four different colleges, and millions of hours in the restaurant industry, here I am. Yappin yer ear off on Mix 100.
A quick breakdown of moi includes, but is not limited to:
1. I would gratefully eat sushi for each meal every day of my life if I could afford it.
2. My dirty little secrets include, but are not limited to: a full-on nail polish addiction, Bryan Fuller television series, live bar trivia, Goonies/Pretty Woman quotes, Daddy-Daughter meals, boxed-wine consumption, Marilyn Monroe and Beatles snapshot collecting, and The Gin Blossoms. I freaking love the Gin Blossoms.
3. My doggie, Kramer, is the cutest Shih Tzu on the planet; quite possibly the cutest dog in the world. It’s really not fair to other pups how ridiculously adorable my Kramer is.
4. Friends are my family, and my family is my life… And oh how I love to embarrass my sucker friends and family.
5. I, without fail, say what everyone is thinking but too scared to voice out loud. It’s a blessing… And a curse. (As I’m sure you know from listening to the show!)
Let's be friends! I'm good for a chuckle or three. And please, keep listening to Dom in the Morning with Emily and Jeremy weekday mornings for hours of laughs, stories, and general merriment. You, my dears, rock my world.  Check out my Instagram, Facebook or blog below!

Because you're beautiful.

The low self-esteem of humans these days dumbfounds me. It isn't just a girl thing. It isn't just an American thing. And it isn't just a youth thing.
Please stop obsessing over food. Please stop ridiculing your own appearance and weight. Please stop fat-shaming others. 
Grow a healthy view of your beautiful self and stop comparing the precious body you were given to those of photoshopped entertainers. We all have bumps and lumps and bits that jiggle and split ends and pimples and bags and dings and gaps and bruises.
Yes, even those pristine people you think are so fabulous.
The proof is right here. Scroll through these pictures and crack through your insecurities to the bright side of the road. It's exhausting hating how you look. Knock it off.
Then take yourself out for french fries and a glass of wine.

Amen Sister!
I agree with you! Life is too short and too precious to waste another minute of it being worried about a couple of 'perceived flaws'! As a long-time personal trainer (who has also struggled with body image issues in my past), my focus with my clients has moved to coaching body acceptance as the first priority. Thanks for bringing so much laughter and fun to the D&J show - it wouldn't be the same without you, and we've been listening for many many years. You are an AMAZING part of their team.

I like your brain!
Perfect post, Miss Emily! Thank you for these absolutely true words. What a magnificent world it would be if we put more energy into our minds and hearts than into the quest for a perfect body. Let's all support Dom's Big Brain club, and go indulge as you suggested. Make mine chili cheese fries!
