I love anchoring the morning show because we have the most fun! So much is developing, spontaneous and unscripted. We're experiencing it all with you in real-time. That's also why I enjoy tweeting during the newscast. It's gratifying getting instant feedback and sharing information with our viewers! Tweet me anytime or find me on Facebook and Instagram.
When I'm not anchoring, I'm volunteering at my two kids' school, rooting for my Cal Bears and the Giants, bargain-hunting or thinking about running.
