I'm a small town Kansas girl who now has the honor of being a trusted television news anchor in Kansas City. I am married to a man our neighbors call "Super Dave" because he once pulled a cluster of tree roots from the ground with his bare hands. He likes me to tell this story. The strong man and I have have two boys, Andrew and Ryan, who couldn't be more different from each other. One is a rule follower who feels guilt the instant he thinks he might've, maybe done something wrong... and the other prefers to smile real big and pretend rules don't exist.
I have worked in television news for 17 years and have learned a great deal during my time on the anchor desk. I've emceed hundreds of events over the years and enjoy the chance to push away from the anchor desk to connect in a room with a real live audience.
