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!
Disc Golf Could Get You Shot!
The game of disc golf has become more and more popular over the last 8 years – but in Midland, Texas it’s become DANGEROUS also!
Stupid Fights All Couples Have
Oh the joys of being married! No, really! There are joys to being married! There are also ridiculous arguments that between married couples – such as how to properly install a new roll of toilet paper (the end piece goes over, NOT under – duh!)

As a parent I know how crazy back to school shopping can be! I think the most infuriating back to school shopping is buying the school supplies!
The Nurses That Helped Me – Could Die
I am fairly open with all of you that listen to me on air or read my blogs - so most of you know that I happen to have several 'health issues'.
Where Is The Body?!
Saturday night (technically Sunday morning as it was 3:45am) I was driving home from a station event and came up on a horrific site that included a demolished Lincoln, a railroad crossing sign laying across train tracks, a ton of blood – and the scariest part…a train coming down the tracks...
What High School Football Is All About
You've probably figured out by now that I have a deep love and passion for High School Football. There is something to be said about the fight and heart that goes into each play, each drive and each second of every quarter that those kids are on the field.
