As a native of Central Illinois, CJ always wanted to be a part of radio in Peoria. Her interest for broadcasting began at very early age when listening to “Gary & Donna on KZ93”.

CJ studied Radio & Television Broadcasting at Illinois Central College and truly enjoyed the experience.
She was fortunate to start work while still in school at WMBD-TV as a Floor Director for the show “The Morning Mix”.
From there CJ moved to WMBD-AM, where she grew her love for radio. For over a decade, producing shows on the talk radio format. But then, it was time to shine.
After a fun run on a Classic Country station, it was onto Mix 106.9.

CJ is a newlywed and loves spending time her husband. They enjoy fixing up their home. Boating and fishing on Spring Lake. Watching television shows; 19 Kids & Counting, The Voice and pretty much anything show on HGTV. And of course, cuddling with puppy Cody.
