Describe the path that led you to this career.

Honestly, free tuition!  I had no idea what I wanted to study when it came time to shop for schools.  I was pretty good at softball and was offered a full ride to Northwestern University, so I decided to accept since my single mom didn’t have much money.   I was intrigued by journalism (especially broadcast journalism) and ran with it.  Here I am a decade later.   I started out wanting to be in front of the camera but quickly fell in love with the behind-the-scenes action!
