I am hopelessly hooked on this profession!
It all began when, as an undergraduate at the University of North Texas in Denton, I landed a position as a news intern here at KDFW.
I was able to observe reporters, photographers, anchors, producers, editors and assignment desk managers spin ideas, current events and spot news into award-winning newscasts. It was then and still is a truly awesome thing.
I was born and raised in Fort Worth, where I graduated from Trimble Tech High School.
So as you can imagine, I count it a great privilege to return home after an incredible journey as a journalist.
My career in storytelling has taken me from television stations in Tallahassee, New Orleans, Sacramento and San Francisco as well as a brief stint in San Antonio.
Along the way, I've chased hurricanes and politicians, covered crime and corruption, not to mention my share of grand openings and parades.
Nowadays, I'm doing more of the same, but in the place where it all began!
The sensational part of it all-- I get the awesome opportunity to share the personal stories of many incredible North Texans.
I'm also blessed that my schedule allows me to attend performances and support my daughter, Belmont University freshman Madison Anglin, a classical pianist and singer-songwriter.
One of my favorite quotes continues to be this one by motivational speaker Les Brown-- "You must tell yourself, no matter how hard it is, or how hard it gets, I'm going to make it."
