Maitlynn was born in Jackson, Michigan and grew up out on Lake LeAnn with her mom, dad and two younger sisters. There she learned a love for classic rock, her personal sense of humor and thought only the coolest people ended up on the radio. With an 'old soul' and support from her family and boyfriend of five years, Maitlynn attended Grand Valley State University for multimedia journalism. From there she worked with the Free Beer and Hot Wings Morning Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan and has now found her way here to WMMQ! Co-hosting alongside Joey Pants in the mornings, she is now one of the cool radio people she wanted to be!
