Hello, my friends!
 
I am over the moon to be a part of the Dom and Jane 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 two. Find me on Facebook. And please, keep listening to the Dom and Jane Show weekday mornings for hours of laughs, stories, and general merriment. You, my dears, rock my world.  Check out my Instagram, Facebook or blog below!

My dear girl, we’ll call her Rose, has been in my life for over a decade. Over the course of our friendship, she has taught me so much about a quiet killer that affects so many of us: mental illness. Rose has spent years of her life struggling to find balance and peace... To find the perfect blend of therapy, medication, meditation, prayer, exercise, and coffee to get to a place that most of us take for granted. That place being stable. To wake up and take a shower and eat lunch and drive a car and pet a dog without crying, or screaming, or being confused and lost. We all deserve to have good days and bad days and just days… Not peaks and valleys and caves.
 

Rose is a personal hero of mine because of her strength and shining optimism, even after the storm. She has overcome so much, and become such a light to others who are still in the middle of their personal battles. And what I’m so damn proud of her for is that she NEVER GAVE UP. 
In light of the devastating loss of Robin Williams, I think people should educate themselves a bit on more on mental health diseases. For those who suffer, it’s not as easy as popping a pill and going to therapy every week. It’s a constant journey to a comfortable place. I wish everyone well on their own journeys. 
Please check out the following sites, for education, support, and relief:
Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance
IMHRO Global Innovation for Brain Health
Bring Change 2 Mind, established by Glenn Close for her sister. 
Please don’t give up. You are loved and important and the warmth from the sun.
Also, the toll-free, 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255); TTY: 1-800-799-4TTY (4889) to talk to a trained counselor.
