I created my own position at the internet video start-up, Veoh Networks. After pursuing my own videoblog called Anchor in PJs, I discovered a need for online content creators to network with one another. So, I created an internet series for Veoh Networks called Viral, which was also referred to as the “TV Guide of the Internet”. I produced, hosted and edited four seasons of the show, totaling 90 episodes. Viral was nominated for two Webby awards, was an official Webby Honoree and was viewed more than 20 million times.

Freelance News Reporter/Writer
I joined the FOX6 news team shortly after getting married and moving to beautiful sunny San Diego. It was a major market jump for me, so I started by doing some freelance writing for the FOX in the Morning show. That eventually lead to freelance reporting for the morning show and evening newscast.
Jun 2002 - Aug 2004
Washington rain was no match for me. Actually, Yakima is known for their 300 days of yearly sunshine, so I was quite happy. While there, I was the NBC affiliate’s main news anchor/reporter for their early and late night newscasts. I also produced/hosted news briefs for the morning shows of a locally-owed radio station group. When I needed to burn off some energy, I taught step and spinning classes at the Yakima YMCA.
Jun 2000 - Jun 2002
This was my first “official” job in the television industry. I was hired exactly three days after graduating with my degree in broadcast news (Actually, I received a “B.S.” in Journalism, which I still find extremely humorous). I immediately moved to Marquette, where I was a main news anchor/reporter for the NBC affiliate. I also updated stories on the station’s website and submitted regular news alerts to viewer’s cell phones. In my “spare” time, I was the head coach for the Northern Michigan University dance team.
