Her appearances and accolades also include independent films, holding down the popular “AFTER Club 104.5,” on Grand Rapids’ largest radio station, 104.5 WSNX, as well as in 2009 being voted the area’s “DJ of the Year” and one of the “Top 10 Most Influential” electronic artists to come out of the region.
