Sunday Driving on Full Throttle County with Me!

by Jessica Northey
Normally I would not have featured MYSELF...but all the people I asked to participate, yes I am talking to you Gnarley Charley forgot to send back the eView. In addition, I have been meaning to find a way to bring some of my own person-ality into this Blog. I am great at talking about Social Media, Country Music, Radio, Sissy-my dog, Politics, Philanthropic Activities, Business, other peoples stories but fall short on telling my own story.
I am originally from Tucson, Arizona where I am a fourth generation native. I attended the University of Arizona and Arizona State University, was a Kappa Kappa Gamma, President of College Republicans, Student Body Leader, Accomplished Pool Shark, Amateur Golfing Hack, Sports Writer, NASCAR Winston Racing Series Official, Political Junkie and friend to many.
I have worked in and around Entertainment and Media for over 20 years. It started on the stage since I could pretty much walk in heels, acting, singing, dancing--I was born to perform: Theatre, commercial and promotional modeling, Trophy Queen,  Traffic Reporter and On-Air Radio Personality at several stations, then sold Television, Radio, Internet and Print Ads. Throughout this journey I have worked in Tucson, Washington DC, Seattle, San Diego, Fresno and Sacramento.
