Dayna was born and raised in New Hampshire - a true New England girl. She grew up listening to a variety of music, from her Grandmother's Elvis 45s, to her Dad's Classic Rock tunes, to her Mom's Beatles albums, she developed a love for all varieties of music, and naturally fell into the world of radio in college. She got her start on a Classic Rock station, but has worked in several different formats, including Country, Hot-AC/Top-40, Triple A and Alternative. Her first ever concert was N'Sync, and one of her favorites was Lady Gaga, but she would consider herself a rock girl at heart… having seen Foo Fighters, The Who, Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, Van Halen, KISS, Heart, Poison, Collective Soul and many others live. She's terrible at faking accents, loves a good burrito, and has a fat cat named Gabby. She and her husband are welcoming their first child together in October 2018.
