Jewel News & Traffic
I worked as an English teacher and as a reporter and columnist for The Sherbrooke Record and Townships Outlet. From my radio beginnings as News Reporter/Program Host at CJMQ in Sherbrooke, I moved to Jewel 98.5, first as a traffic reporter and now anchor news and co-host the morning show.
Favourite Food: Give me any type of Italian food…Pizza, Spaghetti, Lasagna. It’s all good! Maybe its because cheese is used as a primary ingredient and I am a big fan of all kinds of cheeses. Of course, chocolate is a necessary staple in anyone’s diet. Dark chocolate is the best! And yes, a banana and toast for breakfast every morning is a great way to get the day started.
Favourite Movie: My all time favourite movie is Gone with the Wind. Give me a movie I can sink my teeth into — you might say — a drama of substance that teaches a life lesson. However, if I am in the mood for a laugh nothing can compare to Meet the Parents or the National Lampoon’s Vacations movies.
Favourite activities: Walking, visiting museums, dancing, and not to forget shopping — for therapy purposes of course. Nothing compares to family gathers when I have all my now grown children and their children under the same roof with me.
Favourite Artists: Very hard for me to limit myself to one favourite artist as my taste in music can include music from the Crooners to Motown to Pop hits. Luckily, Jewel Radio spans all of that for me.
