Anchor/Reporter, Executive Producer, NewsChannel 21 at Sunrise

I have enjoyed meeting so many great people in Central Oregon and becoming a part of this community.

I find it funny that I get in to work every day while most people are fast asleep. It feels like I belong to a special club of sleep-deprived but happy people. Regardless of the early hours, it's an honor and a privilege to bring the community the morning news.

Bob Shaw and I have a great time together on the show. During commercial breaks, we're often telling jokes and being silly.

The show has an amazing and very capable crew. Stan, Austin, Tyson and Lauren make it a pleasure to come to work every morning, but ... we all eat way too many sweets.

When I'm not working, I'm usually hanging out with three messy boys, my wonderful husband and our sweet daughter. Depending on the time of year, I can be found chasing them with either coats, hats and gloves or sunscreen. Our family loves Cardinal football, even in the off-season, but we root for the Ducks and sometimes the Beavers too.

I am happy to serve on the board of directors for Healthy Beginnings, a NewsChannel "21 Cares for Kids" partner.
