Let's Work Together

As a broadcast reporter and anchor, I've traveled to forty-eight states, covering the American struggle for economic empowerment, law and injustice, and the destructive weather systems that are part of climate change. Along the way, I've helped train scores of reporters at the local, cable, and network levels.

While I appreciate the power of social media, I cherish human connections. I am happy to speak with your organization on any number of social issues, moderate a panel around a thorny topic, or work with you/your group around ways to better communicate and feel more empowered.
