How 13 words can make you a kick-ass rockstar

I just heard a line from Gabby Bernstein’s “May Cause Miracles” and it had the power to change my day: “My gratitude for myself fills me with joy and unleashes my miracle mind.” Wow! Mind blown. Backstory: I’ve been reading this book for 11 days. It is a 40 day practice, for example, you read…

What I learned from my wedding

This blog post was written from Blue Diamond Riviera Maya on my honeymoon, while my new husband scrolled through his Facebook feed.

I tried something new

If you think you’re your own toughest critic, hey, me too. There are many things I can pick apart in this story – for example, I hate the mic flag in the shot. But, I like how we used Instagram – an integral part of the story – to tell the story. Take a look…

How to be a better TV reporter and other life lessons

Do you ever doubt yourself? Wait….if you’re reading this, that means you’re human – and THAT means the answer is yes, at least sometimes. I mentor dozens of young TV reporters and anchors. Any time I start a coaching relationship, the first thing I do is look at someone’s reel, or body of work. Ever…

Anthony Bourdain rescued a tomato in my car

You may not know about my past life (or maybe you do). Up until 4 years ago, I was a certified New York Public Library-card-carrying, Metrocard-using, rent-stabilized-living New Yorker. Yep. And get this, I parked my car on the mean streets of NYC. EVERY. DAMN. DAY. I spent so much time in my car, moving…

Why I’m trying to LIKE the cold

Today, it’s cold. Bone-chilling, wind-whipping, make-your-eyes-tear cold. Can I share a secret with you? When it’s cold, I don’t want to get out of bed. I never know if my job will keep me inside or outside for a 8 hours. I knew that when I started being a reporter, but I still don’t like…

Change was the story: Covering Election Night 2016

It was a plum assignment: Covering Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election night event at the Jacob Javits Center. It was a long, exhaustive slog of an election cycle, and I wasn’t even one of the journalists primarily dedicated to the campaign trail. 595 days of name-calling, allegations, yelling, divisiveness, scandal, disgust. News stories about both candidates…

3 things my dog taught me about life

  For those of you who don’t know, my boyfriend Josh and I adopted a rescue pup named Murray 2 months ago. Murray has been the light of our lives. He’s well-behaved, sweet, inquisitive, fun-loving, loyal, and loves everyone he meets. In the 2 months I’ve lived with this 12-pound bundle of awesome, he’s taught…

How much do you let YOUR age limit you?

If you have a TV, there’s a good chance you know Dr. Robi Ludwig. On any given week, her Insta game could make you look like you’re standing still (me included). On Fox Business, CNN, HLN, Investigation Discovery, HuffPo, Nightline and too many other outlets to name, the New York psychotherapist digs in on a…

Kisses aren’t contracts, presents aren’t promises

 For all of you struggling with relationships, whether you are in one or not, I present this poem. Wow. I forgot how powerful this is. I found this today in one of my journals. It resonated so much – mostly from my time specializing in being in not-too-fulfilling relationships in the past. For the past year,…
