I remember what it was like in my first few TV news jobs. I felt alone. I didn't get feedback. I had no roadmap to get to my dream market.
Now that I've cracked the code on how to get to a Top Ten market, and am working at a network, I want to decode it for you!
Your dreams ARE achievable. You don’t need to go through that journey alone.
I was a high school dropout, with no connections in TV news.
Through hustle, positivity and persistence, I put myself through college and worked my way up to be a reporter in a top 30 market.
But...I had always wanted to work in NYC. It took an “aha moment” for me to realize the only thing holding me back was ME. In short, I got out of my own way and into my dream job.
From there, I became an anchor in Washington, D.C., a correspondent at a network, met my husband and rescued the sweetest dogs ever.
Once I realized my dream life, I wanted to help others to get what they want in life.
Here’s the thing: I know I could have made it to my dream markets quicker - years quicker - if I only had a “me” to guide me.
That’s why I’m here to show YOU how.
I promise you living your dream life IS achievable. If you’ve been looking for that “big sister’ to show you the way,
I'm so glad you asked!
News is a demanding business, with no instruction manual. News Directors don’t always have time to give feedback, and mentors will give you their time when they have some. Plus, they’re not paid to tell you the tough stuff, so 9.9 times out of 10, they’ll leave that out.
I will help keep you accountable for your growth through assignments and deadlines - that’s your personal roadmap!
Not only can I help you become more confident on-air and a better storyteller using all I’ve learned working the competitive crime scenes of NYC - plus holding down the anchor desk in D.C. during a tumultuous time in journalism, I can help you shift your mindset.
