Has it been a smooth road?
I have had big struggles with depression and have now become a mental health advocate – sharing my stories to inspire others. I am a huge voice for female empowerment! I took a huge chance on myself when I left television to pursue a digital career – aka I was no longer getting calls after I left my last Sports Anchor job. So I had to get scrappy and build something of my own – now I score bigger interviews than I ever did when I was in traditional media! The landscape of journalism is changing – people want to hear “realness” and unscripted content.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I run everything online – so when Covid-19 shut everything down, I was able to adapt better than most of my peers! While many former coworkers got laid off, I was developing new techniques to bring original content to sports fans.
