Mandy is a SoCal native and moved with her family to Paso Robles in 1995. While growing up on KJUG, she fell in love with country music after her first Garth Brooks concert at The Forum in 1996. Growing up in Paso solidified her love for the country lifestyle, but after graduating from Paso Robles High School in 2008 she moved to Long Beach, CA to experience the city life. After 8 years and way too many street sweeping tickets later she returned to Paso in 2016.
Since returning to Paso she has continued with finishing her Communications degree at Cuesta and started working with the promotions and on-air team for her favorite radio station, KJUG. When she’s not at a concert she likes travel locally and explore new places in California especially if it has a place with a decent bar and live music.
Catch her on-air every Saturday from 3 – 7pm, Sunday 10a – 1p.
Favorite artists: Florida Georgia Line, Pistol Annies, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Janson, Turnpike Troubadours, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, and of course Garth Brooks!
Favorite moment at a concert: At the Stagecoach music festival a group of friends and I had charmed our way backstage and ended hanging out on one of Brett Young’s tour buses and played ‘heads up’ with some of his crew.
