I’ve come to realize that I am a professional at many things — meaning, I have a variety of talents that I’ve dabbled in over the years.
Before coming to KNOM, I had quite a few job titles. I taught martial arts. I worked as Elmo and the Pink Panther. I was a backup dancer at bar mitzvahs. I taught aerobics at an assisted living home. I was a personal trainer. I was a babysitter. I cleaned houses.
And while my resume certainly speaks to my versatility and adventurous nature, I have to say KNOM takes the cake when it comes to the most titles in one job.
I’m a sportscaster.

I’m a reporter.

And most recently, I’m a DJ.

Oh, and I’ve hosted call-in shows, voiced PSAs and even sang …
I realize that my resume continues to grow in length as my time at KNOM comes to a close soon. When I do leave at the end of next month, I’ll have completed jobs that I never thought I’d ever have the opportunity or maybe even the ability to accomplish.
In the end, it’s not the destination, but the journey. Not the amount of job titles I have, but the experiences that went along with them, and of course, growth.
