Multimedia Journalist, Weekend Anchor, NewsChannel 21
What's going on, Central Oregon!
As a multimedia journalist, radio personality, blogger and all-out foodie, I love what I do! That goes hand-in-hand with the passion I have for the news, sports, music and entertainment industries.
I've provided entertainment news for Fox's KPTM News in Omaha, Nebraska, as well as dished up entertainment news and celebrity gossip for ABCs KGUN 9 Morning News in Tucson, Arizona.
In addition, I had a long career in radio, including Power 94 - Central Oregon, and prior to that, in the San Francisco Bay Area on 98.1 KISS FM Radio with the Renel in the Morning Show.
My community work includes becoming a Champion Ambassador for Every Kid Sports and Storytime Reader for the Deschutes Public Library's Read Rhyme Romp program.
I enjoy fun time, which includes whitewater rafting, astrobiology, horseback riding -- and as a foodie, checking out all the cool eats around the town!
Also, I enjoy sports! We grew up (Oakland) Raiders, Oakland A's and Golden State Warriors fans! Sports were a big pastime as a kid. I remember, I was recruited for the flag football team, along with my older brother, John, because of my speed in track and field.
I was the only female on the team. I was terrified every time the coach looked to call me up, though. I did make it into the game, with encouragement from my big brother -- and scored a touchdown. Needless to say, I switched to a sport less physical: cheerleading! Ha ha!
