I am a journalist with more than 15 years experience covering news, features, entertainment, business and investigative stories as an anchor, reporter, writer and producer.
I am currently developing “Working Mom Warrior,” a series of video profiles of working mothers to inspire women everywhere who are overwhelmed trying to “have it all” — successful career, healthy family, personal happiness.
I am a mother of two teenagers who spent years pursuing all kinds of academic, sports and musical activities that have become usurped by Snapchat and Netflix binges. My husband can’t decide if he’s happy he has more time to play guitar and close real estate deals or longs for the days when he was their soccer and baseball coach.
As a working freelance journalist, I am currently contributing regular news stories for “Business First AM” and the Naperville Sun as well as producing videos through Savvy Storytelling Productions.
In my career I have worked as a reporter in television, print, radio and online, including the CBS affiliate in Milwaukee, the Los Angeles Daily News, Us magazine, the Mancow Morning Show and many others.
I am an eternal optimist driven to succeed in all areas of my life and motivate others around me to do the same, though parenting teens has definitely put that to the test.
