About Jenny
Working in country radio is pretty much all I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid growing up in Mooresville, North Carolina. After working as a Certified Nurse Assistant & X-Ray tech for eight years, I decided to go back to college to pursue my original passion and chase my radio dream! I’m a proud graduate of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting Charlotte Campus. After graduating, I worked as a mobile DJ and was an intern with our sister station, WSOC-FM in Charlotte, on air with the Charlie & Debbie afternoon show (formerly Johnson & Johnson mornings here on Kicks 99 in the 90’s.) The radio crazy train has taken me from Charlotte to Monroe, NC to Brunswick, GA, and now here to Augusta. I have made so many great friends and memories here, and couldn’t be happier or more proud to be a part of such a fantastic team of people!

The day I came to sign my contract in February 2014, Chris O’Kelley told me that Augusta would be unlike any other place I had ever lived or worked, and that it would change my life – and boy, was he right! Not only did I land my dream job on the Kicks Wake Up Krew, but in September of 2014, I also met my dream man, Chris Bender, and we were married in May of 2016.
I’m a huge music lover, so when I’m not doing the radio thang, you can usually find me tearing up karaoke around town. Other things I love are cooking, puzzles and cats. I also serve at my church, Genesis in Martinez, where my husband and I both sing & play on the worship team each week.
