A little about me...

Hey there, I'm so excited to meet all of you and --finally--join Junior League! I'm pretty new to Tucson (though I lived here 12 years ago for a a couple years). We now live in Oro Valley and love it. I was born in Virginia, but spent my high school years living in a small farming community in Ohio. I met the love of my live in college at Arizona State and we've been married for 17 years (he's a Tucson native!).

Education:

Arizona State-I originally went to college to be a psychologist, but couldn't get into my core classes until my Sophomore year. I wanted to dive right in, so I ended up in Broadcasting & the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.

Career:

TV NEWS: After graduation I was a substitute teacher in Georgia few a few months. There was a teacher shortage, so I was actually in the classroom every day. Next I moved to Oklahoma for my first reporting job....then Texas, Louisiana, Tucson, Cleveland, Providence, Phoenix and now back to Tucson, where I anchor the 12:00 & 4:00 pm at KVOA on Channel 4. Yes, we plan to stay. :)

STELLA & DOT: After noticing the jewelry in InStyle magazine and on a lot of celebs and seeing how much success one of my friends had in the company, I decided to become a Stylist with Stella & Dot. I love the fashion, fun & extra money...but most of all I love that I can help other women achieve their goals of flexible entrepreneurship.

Family:

We have a five year old daughter named Paige. She is truly my greatest blessing. My siblings are scattered throughout the United States and my dad lives in Panama.
