Professional Summary

I am a seasoned news anchor, reporter, and weather anchor with more than 15 years of experience in a fast paced newsroom. However you will see form my reel that I can be fun or serious depending on the story, I am not just a news reader of a teleprompter. I possess excellent communication and listening skills with the ability to ad lib in any situation from breaking news to interviews. I have the ability to make people feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera in a live or taped setting.  I take direction well and I know how to complete tasks in very short periods of time because a news room runs on minutes and seconds. I am a true 'people' person and love my job because I learn something new everyday from interviewing such a diverse group of people on a daily basis.

Additional Information
Getting To Know Me
I have been in the news business since 1998 and started as a receptionist while attending college. Through the years, I worked my way up and I have been on the air since 1999. This business has given me the ability to communicate with all different types of people. I would describe myself as easy going, witty, and kind. I truly care about people and their needs. I wish I could change so many unfortunate things in this world. If you meet me in person, you will see that I am genuine on camera and off. Viewers always tell me they like me because I am so 'real' on camera.
Creative Live is fairly new to me but your classes are more than impressive, it's a wonderful concept and I have a few friends who rave about your photography courses. I recently saw Beate Chelette on your site and was hooked by what she said. Her vision on obtaining goals was awesome!
I also can provide several references upon request and any work history prior to 2006.
