SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

People always ask me, "why don't you want to be on the anchor desk?" My answer: because I love being out on the streets of Detroit with its people, that is where I belong.

I may not have been born here, but I AM A DETROITER NOW! My heart and soul is invested in the momentum, the potential and the rich tradition of The Motor City.

My home at Fox 2, is "On The Edge" every night at 11:00 pm. Over the past 10 years, my stories have revealed the tragedy of crimes, the violation of victims, the spirit of the underdogs and the courage of Detroit's heroes.

I truly enjoy spending my time with Detroiters on the job and off. It is an honor meeting, volunteering and sharing stories with people with so much passion.

I think what I love most about this city is, its people...who never give up. Detroiters are warriors who wear hope and optimism on their sleeves. They believe we can fight crime, that we can fix the city's finances, and that Detroit can be better than it ever was.

Plus, I know about comebacks, I am from Cleveland, Ohio. I graduated from Ohio State University and after college I worked in TV in Dayton, upstate New York and Kansas City, Missouri. 

People call my reporting gritty, "EDGY", unconventional and unforgettable. I have an Emmy under my belt too!

I think what Detroit and I have in common, is you never know what you're going to get, Tonight...On The Edge!

Interesting facts:

-I am a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated

-I can be found on IMDB, for my role in Annabelle and Bear

-I love animals, especially my "fur-child" Dexter

-I am obsessed with changing my hair styles (I have been a hair model)

-I love cooking, eating, reading, learning new things, traveling, and spending time with my family, friends and awesome Husband, Joe, (he's a cameraman at Fox 2!)
