One Rockin' Year As The Loop Rock Girl!
Posted 9/26/2013 2:36:00 PM

As many of you already know, The Loop has asked me to be your permanent Loop Rock Girl! I'm still in shock over that recent decision. It is such an honor to represent the best classic rock radio station in Chicago! I say on Twitter and other social media that I have the best job in the whole world and I say it because it's 100% true, I really do. I have all of you Loyal Loopers to thank for that! If it wasn't for all of you loving rock and roll the way you do, we wouldn't have this station, and without this station, I wouldn't have the job that I do, so I really can't begin to thank you enough!

One year ago I was stressing out about what I was going to do and say in my 2-minute submission video for the 2013 Loop Rock Girl search. I was fresh out of the military, still getting adjusted to what the Marine Corps calls 'civilian life', and moved to Chicago without any family nearby. A big thank you has to go out to Lindsey, the Loop Rock Girl from 2010, who orginally convinced me that I had a fighting chance at actually winning this title. I remember looking at her pictures, her videos from her Loop events, and thinking about how beautiful and amazing she was! She was my mentor throughout the Rock Girl Search. Thanks Lindsey!

Since winning, my life has changed dramatically! Everyone at The Loop has had my best interest in mind and they've let my voice be heard. Being with The Loop really is like being apart of a family- a very crazy but awesome one! I love talking with Maxwell on Maxwell's Morning Show, doing the joke of the day, making videos, going to photo shoots, attending concerts, and best of all, meeting Loyal Loopers! The radio station events have given me a great opportunity to really get to know you. You have shown unparalleled support and compassionate for me, the radio station, and classic rock as a whole!

This year as been one hell of a ride and I can't wait to keep it going throughout the years to come! And guess what? We're starting to shoot our 2014 calendar now, so stay tuned! XOXO

    That's awesome! Not since the 70's (yes I'm dating myself) with Lorelei, the iconic spokes model was there someone as worthy as you. Keep Rockin for years to come...
