I cover the environment and wildlife issues for KING 5, which basically means I get paid to do a lot of hiking with really fascinating people. It’s a tough job.
I moved to Seattle from my home state of Florida a few years ago, but I’ve never felt more at home than when I’m atop a ridge in the North Cascades.
I don’t have the traditional background of a broadcast reporter. I studied history and French in college, lived in Paris, moved to New York City to produce for FOX & Friends, then left television to pursue becoming a psychologist by completing a Master of Divinity degree from Boston University’s School of Theology. It was my preaching professor whose wise words inspired me to rethink journalism. He said that we are all storytellers, and as such, have the responsibility to tell stories that move our communities forward not backward.
I am inspired daily by the unsung heroes of Western Washington, who work tirelessly protecting our state's natural resources. It is my honor to work with them.
I am willing to hike long distances in the snow for a chance to tell those stories, so if you have one, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
