Well, I grew up in the good old Midwest and apparently can’t shake my accent. I prefer to blame this on all my Chicago native girlfriends. Growing up an only child has made me fiercely independent and majorly stubborn. I always begged for siblings and finally got 2 when my dad remarried! Being back here has been great because I’m close to all my family again which is what I’ve been missing all these years spent in the cold!
I may not look it now, but I was a total soccer-playing tomboy until high school. Then I got my first eyebrow wax and it was all downhill from there. Now I have the monthly dilemma of either furnishing my apartment or buying clothes and let’s just say that I eat standing up in my kitchen.
I got my media start working for my college TV station at Miami University in Ohio, where I quickly learned that a career in news reporting was not a good fit for me. Cutting my hair into a bob, wearing a suit and interviewing victims of crime everyday is just not my personality! I would much rather be goofy and get ridiculed for it in front of millions of people every morning!
