First job: First actual job gave me some serious arm muscles scooping ice cream at Jiffy Treet outside my hometown of Bloomington. I still make a mean banana split. First career-related job was at WTHR-NBC TV here in Indianapolis— I saw a time of day I never knew existed while working the Sunrise and Nightbeat shifts as a web producer!
Favorite team: Easy. Go Bulldogs! You'll see my husband and I cheering them on every year at Hinkle Fieldhouse.
Alma mater: Butler University (B.A. in Journalism) and Indiana Wesleyan University (M.A. in Organizational Leadership)
Drink of choice: I enjoy a good Bloody Mary and a strong cup of black coffee. Preferably one right after the other on a Saturday morning (or any morning).
