I’ve been working at Wessex FM for over ten years now. I started off doing work experience in the newsroom and never left. I’m a Dorchester girl originally but made the big move over the ridgeway a few years ago now to live in Weymouth. So when I’m not telling you the latest local news or chatting to bands on Unplugged you’ll find me singing with my band Hustle. Music is my first love – my second love is crisps.
My Favourite Place In Dorset
This would have to be Bockhampton Path. It runs along the River Frome and leads to Stinsford Church where Thomas Hardy’s heart is buried. It’s a beautiful and tranquil walk and prefect for getting away from the stresses and strains of daily life. I also have many found memories of going there as a child, fishing for minnows with a jam jar.
My Top Three
1. The Beatles - In My Life
2. Stevie Wonder - Signed, Sealed, Delivered
3. Guns & Roses - Sweet Child 'o' Mine
Why do I love being part of the Wessex FM team?
No two days are ever the same at Wessex FM. I’m very lucky to be able to do a job I love which has also allowed me to fulfil some personal ambitions of interviewing some amazing people. We’re a very close team, in fact I would say we’re like a family.
