Well – let’s see, I started my career in radio in 1998 and swore I would never do anything else. I come from a very musical and theatrical background. My father was a musician, which is how I got my name - “Amy” by Bobby Darin. He stop playing when I was born and then became a music teacher and now runs an old historic theater in Odessa – The Ector Theatre – with my mother. My mother was a dancer – tap and ballet – I don’t know when she stopped dancing and decided to teach dance – but she was my tap teacher. I also took ballet and jazz lessons from the age of 4 until diagnosed with Lupus at 15. I took classical piano lessons for 8 years also. So, as you can see music has always been in my family.
I met my husband when we were 16 years old – in my hometown of Odessa, TX – at a Permian High School Football game – where we both graduated. We’ve been together ever since and have 2 kids. He is a Registered Nurse at a local hospital.
My son, Jake, is 16 and plays football for Coronado High School (GO STANGS!!) where I am the booster club president for the football team. I absolutely LOVE high school football and have taken it upon myself to “adopt” all 200+ Coronado football players and call them all “son”. I am VERY passionate and protective of those kids!
My daughter, Bri, is 10 and plays drums in a little rock band at School of Rock and is in the Honor Choir at her school. She clearly inherited the music from dad and I am excited about that! Her ultimate goal is to be a drummer and lead singer of a rock band – and she will I’m sure!
And basically that’s about it – but just for fun I will give you 5 “fun facts” about myself -
1. I have a very real fear of bad odors!
2. Feet absolutely disgust me – and is not something anyone wants to tease me with.
3. I have a titanium mesh plate and nine screws in the back of my head.
4. I LOVE Karaoke! (Don’t judge)
5. I make my bed every night before getting into it because my covers must be straight and perfect.
There ya have it – that’s who I am!
I’m excited to talk to you, and feel free to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Email or Instagram – I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends!
