My First Life

Before I had children, I spent 10 years working in the news business. I started my career at WTAP in Parkersburg, WV. After 2.5 years, I packed my bags and headed to the deep South. I spent almost 7 years in Birmingham, Alabama working every shift imaginable at CBS42. I met a lot of incredible people, reported on thousands of tornadoes, and traveled to 3 National Championship games. It’s in Alabama where I met my husband and our first child was born. It’s also in Alabama where a big piece of my heart remains.

Our family left Alabama and moved to Lexington, KY where I worked for 2 years at WLEX-TV…the same station I interned at during my time at the University of Kentucky.

We then moved to Savannah, GA. Savannah is where my husband and I hope to return to one day. Who doesn’t adore those Spanish Moss trees?!

I’m sharing these pieces with you because the news business was such a big part of my life and it made me who I am today.

So here you go, little clips of my first life. BK (Before Kids).

Anchor hair, spray tan and all!

Yes, I was the “ring master” at the circus once.
