I’m a professional…

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.

    Hey Margaret, This is Kathy, Josh Cunningham’s aunt (I love to name drop). I’m 48 years old, & wish I would have had the courage to go out there & kick-ass at everything, unafraid, as you and Josh have. You will go far, as long as you always stand on your tippy-toes, to reach up ;)
