What's your favorite thing about the morning?

My favorite thing about the morning is the peacefulness of it all! I love getting an early start to the day, before the chaos of "life" begins around 9:00am for most people.

What time do you wake up in the morning in order to get to set on time?

I wake up at 1:45am! My head hits the pillow at 8:15pm the night before.

Recall your best memory from working in News...

Some of my best memories include covering military homecomings in Savannah, Georgia. There's nothing like witnessing a father seeing his baby for the first time; a mother hugging her son after he's face combat; or an excited child trying to tell his or her parent everything they've missed in the last year in just a matter of minutes. In addition to covering homecomings, I've loved covering every story that ends happily. We see a lot of bad news in this profession, so the opportunity to be a part of something pleasant is rewarding.

Recall your funniest memory from working in News...

My funniest memories include some of my own bloopers. Whether it was flubbing a word or tripping while walking and talking, I've had my fair share of "blonde" moments, but look back on them with a smile...and a giggle.

What is your favorite breakfast food?

MMM...an everything bagel with cream cheese and a slice of tomato!

How do you take your coffee?

I take my coffee STRONG with a lot of cream.

What's your favorite thing about the morning?

I love being the only person on the streets in the morning. Driving into work the city is so beautiful!

What time do you wake up in the morning in order to get on set on time?

I get up at 2 a.m. and set three clocks to do it. I also have two dogs that start barking when they hear the alarm!

What's your best memory working in news?

I got to interview a Harlem Globetrotter! As a kid I always wanted to be a Globetrotter.

What's your funniest memory working in news?

My first Azalea Festival I interviewed Azalea Belles. I used the word "fantastic" 21 times in an hour!

What is your favorite breakfast food?

Every morning I have a chocolate/banana/peanut butter smoothie.

How do you take your coffee?

In large quantities.
