With music as her passion, she left VSU to pursue her dream of becoming a singer in 1993. Touring off and on for almost five years, she found herself back home discouraged, but not ready to call it quits. Faced with many trials and tribulations, she worked odd jobs by day, recording at night. But it took the tragedy of her mother falling very ill that made her have to make the ultimate sacrifice of putting her dreams and aspirations to the side to take care of her mother. Three years later, during that time KMontá was informed about an opportunity at POWER 92.1 JAMZ. In 2002, Former Program Director, Terry Foxx, and former Music Director/Program Director, Reggie B., gave her a shot as an overnight board operator. Within two months of her new position, her mother died.
