My passion for news developed during middle school. I would watch the 4 p.m. news every day when I got home from school. I admired the reporters and envied how they were always close to the action. I later joined the newspaper staff in high school and became the news editor. I was actually pretty good and won first place in a regional journalism competition. At that point, there was never really a question of what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I've been in the TV news business for 17 years now and throughout my career, I've been given the opportunity to cover some major national stories, including the 2000 Florida election recount, the Virginia Tech massacre, the September 11th attacks in New York City, and the tenth anniversary in Shanksville, PA. In 2006, I was honored to receive a Kudos award for best reporter from the American Women in Radio and Television, Golden Gate Chapter.
