She's been GM since (and before) they came on to the public
airwaves in 1982, and was involved in the station since she
was a U. Mass. Boston student in the late 60's/early 70's.

She was the main person who was actually responsible for
putting it on the air from the closed-circuit station it
originally was (after a lengthy complicated process to carve
out a frequency to be granted on the dial), and then for it's
transformation from a volunteer community/student station to
a paid professional Public Radio station with their joining
the CPB in 1986. She's been there her entire adult life, and
will most likely continue to be dedicated to it indefinitely.
