I started my news career in radio in Los Angeles on the 24-hour news station, KFWB. After several years, I made the jump from radio to television on the “green screen” at KABC. I reported on traffic, weather and had a franchise segment, the “Top 7.” My job? I just had to try the best burgers, or the best seafood, and go to the cutest boutiques around town. It was a tough assignment. When ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” became a summer sensation shortly after its debut, I served as the station’s resident dance expert, as I at one time, competed as an amateur Latin ballroom dancer. As a reporter in “La La Land,” I also had my share of interviews with celebrities. After helming the inaugural live webcast of the Academy Awards Arrivals show, I subsequently co-anchored “On the Red Carpet” which aired in over 100 countries during the Oscars.
Now as the evening anchor and investigative reporter, I take plenty of satisfaction in being the voice for the voiceless, holding government and elected leaders accountable, and getting results for those who are wronged.
My career has taken me across one time zone at a time – L.A. to Denver, to Corpus Christi, then Kansas City. I’m finally on Florida time (where I'm from - Go Canes!), where my passions for yoga, dance and golf can find their happy place.
My firefighter husband and I also love to watch movies and travel as much as possible. We might just have to put those beach destinations towards the bottom of the bucket list now that we have the awesome gulf beaches in our backyard.
