Virginia's successful radio career started at just 14 years of age, when she was offered a regular on air co-hosting role at her local radio station, Snowy Mountains 2XL.
Fast forward fifteen years and Virginia has since worked alongside some of Australia's best and most well-known personalities in the country's biggest metropolitan markets - presenting with them, producing for them, and along the way gaining invaluable skills and highly sought-after experience.
Virginia has a long list of qualities that she attributes to her success, including a strong work ethic, passion for making quality entertainment, outstanding interpersonal skills both on and off the air, and of course, a life-long love of music.
Virginia's adaptability and approach to her work is second to none - she is no stranger to filling-in 'on air' at a minutes notice with her always sincere and effortlessly bright demeanour.
In 2007 Virginia moved from Brisbane to Nova 96.9 in Sydney, where she has worked alongside some of Australia's biggest radio personalities including Merrick and Rosso, Kate Ritchie, Jamie Row, Jason 'Jabba' Davis, James Mathison, Ricki-Lee Coulter, James Kerley and Maz Compton. Although Virginia was Nova's resident weekends announcer, she also regularly filled in on weekday shifts and presenting the iTunes Countdown - a national show heard on every station within the Nova network. See the Nova 96.9 website here.
In 2005 Virginia was asked to join the programming team at Nova 106.9 - a new radio station being launched in Brisbane. Nova instantly became Brisbane's number one station and Virginia quickly immersed herself in the Nova family, becoming very passionate about Nova's brand values. She did weekends and late nights on air, working with a lineup including comedian Meshel Laurie, Ash & Luttsy, Emily-Jade O'Keefe, Brendan 'Whippy' Dangar, Jason 'Jabba' Davis, Justine McKell and Brendon 'Bossy' Boss.

It wasn't long after she started doing live on-air crosses for FM104.7's breakfast show that Virginia was offered the role of On-Air Presenter for the station's highly successful Hot30 Countdown. Initially hosting the show alongside Justin 'Drex' Drexall and later, Troy 'Bad Boy' Wade, the witty duos managed to increase their nightly market share to a whopping 87%.

Following a lengthy stint in the corporate business world and with a strong desire to move back into the media/music industry in 2002, Virginia resigned from her role at Young Achievement Australia and took up a promotions role at Canberra FM. Her skills and experience in marketing and management made her an excellent candidate for preparing and implementing station promotional activities. At that time, she also became 104.7's weekend radio presenter.
While studying for her Year 10 School Certificate, Virginia sought work experience at her local radio station 2XL. So impressed was the Program Director by her initiative, creativity and flair that he offered her a role as 'phone girl' for the Hot20. That position developed into an on-air role co-hosting the show with Scotty Masters and from there, Virginia was well on her way to a hugely successful radio career.
