Personal life

I was born and raised in Saskatoon, and I am proud that my roots go back to the family farm in the Aberdeen area.  I attended Prince Philip School and graduated from Walter Murray Collegiate and University of Saskatchewan.

 

I am married to radio broadcaster Vic Dubois who manages Saskatoon Media Group that includes CJWW, 92.9 THE BULL, and 98COOL radio stations.  Our son Patrick is following in Vic’s footsteps in broadcasting as an on-air personality (specifically as mornings show host on 92.9 THE BULL) and program director.  Patrick’s partner Crystal is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan and is employed at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital.
