Life & Career Milestones

My path in life took a while to figure out

  • 1.

    I grew up in a family with fostered and adopted kids. As a kid, I was always a bit of a performer.

  • 2.

    I took broadcast journalism in high school—for me, that’s really where it all started.

  • 3.

    I was offered a few scholarships to ASU and that sealed the deal: I knew I wanted to be a Sun Devil.

  • 4.

    While studying at the journalism school, I was encouraged to take a variety of internships.

  • 5.

    I found a passion for broadcasting and focused on that; by the time I graduated, I had a job offer.

  • 6.

    I’ve been in the business for over 30 years now; in that time, I’ve lucky enough to win 16 Emmys.

  • 7.

    In my free time, I’ve taken up mentoring and have been working with young adults in the area.

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    You're a boring anchor.

  • How I responded:

    I came to L.A. when I was 25 years old, so when I got that feedback, I knew it was because I was young and inexperienced. I decided to be grateful for the feedback, and rather than get discouraged, I just put my head down and kept working. You gradually get more comfortable in the job and in your own skin, and as that starts happening, you develop genuine emotions about the stories you’re working on, and you gain that range.
