In the world of Twitter, I’m a, “Lover of Justice-Agent for Change-What can I do for YOU? TV Talk Show Host, Consumer Reporter, Wife, Mother, Believer, USC grad, Mini-Van Driver.”

Wow, a few letters can say a lot.

I prefer the expanded version. We are all so much more than our internet identities and that’s why I would love to help you tell your story.

As an Emmy-award winning Contact 6 consumer reporter, my mission is to save you money.

Once I was calling a business to get a viewer’s money back and the receptionist got irritated. She told me, “If you don’t mind me saying (which is code for I’m about to say something rude), you are just a GLORIFIED customer service woman.”

I LOVED it! I told her I was going to put it on my business card because she’s right. Contact 6 steps in when the company’s customer service fails.

Contact 6 has been going strong since 1972. I was honored and overwhelmed when FOX 6 asked me to take the reins from Milwaukee legend Tom Hooper in 1999.

I’m proud to still be helping people with Contact 6 plus over the years, I’ve filled a lot of other positions too. I’ve been the co-anchor of FOX 6 News at 5, 6, 9 and 10 plus co-hosted Real Milwaukee.

This California girl has FOX 6 to thank for finding a husband too.🙂 Scott worked in our Creative Services department when we met and we now enjoy time with our 10-year-old son.

I know how expensive life can be, so best to protect your family by watching our Contact 6 reports on FOX 6 News at 4 and 10.

Thanks for watching and reading!
