What I find most rewarding in anchoring is providing continuous coverage during breaking news. That is when our community needs us most, when it counts on us to deliver accurate, important information in real time. That's also why I tweet and post on social media during the newscast. It's gratifying sharing relevant information and getting instant feedback from our viewers. Tweet me anytime or find me on Facebook and Instagram.
When I'm not anchoring, I'm volunteering at my kids' schools, cheering for them in sports, and rooting for my Warriors, Giants and Cal Bears. I also enjoy working to empower girls and women in journalism, leadership and STEM.
