What are you most proud of when it comes to your work?

That people feel like the person they watch on TV is the REAL me. I take real pride in making sure that's always the case.

What are you most proud of in your own life?

My three handsome sons!

What do you love about living in the KC area?

I grew up in a tiny Texas town, so for me, big cities can be a little intimidating. Kansas City has never fit that description. It feels like a HUGE small town, and I really like that. I felt at home almost immediately here.

What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions?

I'm learning them, but I love to play golf, so I'm going to spend lots of time scouting courses. Send me your suggestions!

All-time favorites....

Movie: Stand-alone: "Forrest Gump" Series: "Star Wars"
Shows: "The West Wing"
Book: I'm a proud "Harry Potter" fan
Music: I'm a Texan, so I'll always stop for George Strait

Other than KSHB.com and KSHB 41, you get your news from….
