One of my earliest childhood memories is driving by a car accident and grilling my mom, "What happened?" "Is everyone okay?" "Who's at fault?" Before I even knew how to describe it, I wanted to be a journalist.
On a full-ride academic scholarship, I attended Central Wyoming College in my home state and immediately excelled in the school's broadcasting program. I began working at Wyoming Public Radio and Wyoming Public Television. I continued my education at the University of Wyoming, earning a B.S. in Communications with a minor in Criminal Justice.
I spent the next 8 years working as a reporter, anchor and producer at television stations across the country including Cheyenne, WY, Grand Junction, CO, Fort Myers, FL and Indianapolis, IN. During my career I received the Colorado Association of Broadcasters award for "Best Series" for my work on serial killers, and in Indy, I helped our morning team earn a regional Emmy for "Best Morning Show."
In 2009, I left the news biz and moved to Chicago to be with my now husband. At his urging, I started blogging and soon developed a following. Readers describe my work as "entertaining," and "funny." Some even say reading my blog is the highlight of their day.
I currently work as a publicist for a boutique PR firm in New York City. Most recently, I worked as a news writer for Chicago's #1 AM news station and earned my Master's in Journalism at Northwestern University, earning a 3.85 GPA.
