Biography

Emmy-nominated producer and correspondent for 'PBS NewsHour Weekend.' Formerly a producer and researcher for 'Dan Rather Reports.' And if you really wanted to go into past history, I started off as a lover of the arts and spent 8 years as a singer-dancer in New York City.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Freelance blogger and I worked for free...Your time and talents are valuable - GET PAID as soon as possible.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. As an elementary school student I did use a typewriter. I even used one in college as a work study student for the dean.

How is social media changing news?

Social media drives news stories and topics. I think more "under-reported" stories are able to surface thanks to social media.
