I’m a self-proclaimed badass and an absolute maniac.

I’m nonstop. Always on the go. My mom often reminds me to eat because she'd afraid I'll forget. Trust me, mom, I’ll never forget.  

Born and raised in New Jersey, I attended Rutgers University (GO KNIGHTS) which is where I jump started my career in radio! As a student, I was fortunate enough to land an internship at Z100 New York and Elvis Duran and the Morning Show - the exact show that made me fall in love with radio at age 10. A month before graduation I got the news that I was being hired full time, and the rest is history!

Throughout the six years I spent working for Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, I hustled my butt off. I did everything in my power to soak in all the knowledge I could about radio – both on and off the air. Three years in, I started a podcast with my co-worker, Anthony, to get some more experience. To our surprise our podcast, MyDayFriday, actually took off! Two years later we found ourselves driving cross-country to Seattle where we had landed our own morning show, "Carla Marie & Anthony". You can now listen to us weekdays on POWER 93.3 in Seattle and live from anywhere in the world on our iHeartRadio app. How freaking cool is that? I recently launched my own podcast, Side Hustlers, where I talk to people who are following their passion and working on something other than their 9-5 job!

To say I'm following my dream is an understatement.  But there’s more to me than meets the eye - or ear. I created this blog to share more about who I am, what I love (travel, fashion, fitness and then some) and connect with everyone who’s chosen to support me on this wild ride. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
