A lifelong learner - researcher - mother - former journalist. I first recorded the news and poetry into a reel to reel tape recorder emulating Walter Cronkite in the 1970's. We moved a lot and I learned to chameleon my voice to fit in - or remove all accent to avoid offense. I enjoyed the long format story telling and series reporting I did in Nashville in the 1990's. I loved the years of reading the entire Harry Potter series out loud to my kids.
In 1997, I won a MidSouth Regional Emmy Award at WSMV in Nashville, TN. I worked at WSMV, KAMC (Lubbock, TX) and WISN (Milwaukee, WI) as a fill in anchor, weekend anchor and reporter. When I left my career to start a family, I volunteered and held leadership positions in my kids schools, after school activities and 4H clubs. I have been the Executive Director of a non-profit that gifts children in need free braces for ten years. On our small hobby farm, I started a beekeeping and honey confection business. And in 2019, I won a Good Food Award for my Honey Salted Caramels. I humbly accepted the award from Alice Waters in San Francisco, CA.
I have been fortunate to receive praise from peers and mentors in multiple disciplines. I was recognized for education, environmental and investigative journalism. I was honored for my work implementing a pay-it-forward component in a non-profit that gives children in need new smiles. My sustainable work with honey bees and products of the hive have earned me state and national recognition.
