With Idaho roots seven-years-deep, Ryan’s lived somewhat of a gypsy life as a military spouse for the last 14 years. From Chicago to Germany, to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, she’s found her forever home in Star and on the radio! Assumed to be a man with Low-T, Ryan’s spent the majority of her adult life fending off solicitations for male enhancement products.

If you call her and don’t tell her she’s on speakerphone with your kids within earshot, you most certainly will next time.
