Knew you wanted to be a reporter when … I watched videos back from when I was a kid, dancing, singing and always wanting to be the star of the show.
Best movie of all time – I’m the worst movie critic ever because I enjoy every movie but if I had to choose, it would be Armageddon (yes, I cry every time).
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.
