It’s an honor and a joy to tell your stories every night as an evening anchor at KING 5. It’s even more special to do it in my adopted hometown of Seattle.
I grew up over the border in Vancouver, BC, in a television family. My mom is a former news anchor and television host at the CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and my sister, Jessi, is a Canadian talk show and game show host. It must have been in my genes to pursue broadcast journalism at Northwestern University.
I worked as a reporter, anchor and producer at television stations in Lynchburg, Virginia, and San Diego, California, before landing a job at the NBC station in Boston. That’s where I had the most challenging and heart-wrenching day of my career: anchoring 9 hours of live coverage immediately following the Boston Marathon bombing.
After 6 years covering some of the country’s biggest stories in news, politics, weather and sports on the East Coast, my family and I decided it was time to come home to the Pacific Northwest.
My husband, Greg, is a proud UW Husky. We spend our time chasing after our two young kids, Louis and Isla, and enjoying as much of our beautiful state as we can.
