Hardest part of my job – Watching and covering tragic stories involving loss of life or extreme terror.
Favorite holiday - Thanksgiving. Another excuse to have my mom’s home cooking as well as give thanks to everything I’m blessed with such as family, friends and experiences I’ve had in my life-time.
