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.
With more than 20 years of story-telling experience, I’m passionate about speaking to businesses and organizations who want to craft a story that sells.
As an Emmy-award winning Contact 6 reporter, my mission is to get cash back for viewers who have had bad experiences with businesses and try to stop it from happening to others.
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.
My parents always told us, “to much is given, much is expected” and it’s important to serve and help others. My brother now works for the Fresno Rescue Mission where we grew up in California. I’m super proud of him.
I graduated from Clovis High School and the University of Southern California. Right after the Los Angeles riots, I promptly bolted with my Broadcast Journalism and Political Science degree.
Straight to the quieter surroundings of Parkersburg, West Virginia and my first on-air job for WTAP. Next stop was coming to Milwaukee as a reporter for WTMJ, then on to KATU in Portland, Oregon for a year before coming back to the people I love in Milwaukee.
In the fall of 1998, I started at FOX 6. Six months later they called me in and offered me the Contact 6 job (scary). Tom Hopper left big shoes to fill.
Years later now, I’m still going strong with Contact 6 plus I’ve filled a lot of other positions. I’ve been the co-anchor of FOX 6 News at 5, 6, 9 and 10, co-hosted Real Milwaukee and am currently on Studio A.
I also have to thank FOX 6 for helping me find a husband. :) Scott worked in our Creative Services Department back in the day and now we have an awesome son who is already 9.
We spend our time doing homework I hardly understand, stepping on Legos and constantly reminding him to clean the litter box.
You can hear all about it on Studio A weekdays at 4 p.m. and don’t forget Contact 6 reports on FOX 6 News at 10.
Thanks for watching and reading!
