“The way we gather, transmit, tell and present news and information has a wide arc and using every tool at your disposal to elevate the viewer’s experience is a daily challenge. Seeing the direct impact and reach of television news in the early days of my career informed how I operate today. I am passionate about building new initiatives and programs that support and enhance the company’s goals.”

How has your definition of success changed over the course of your career? As I moved through my television news career, I, like most, viewed success as elevated responsibilities and widening my leadership footprint. When given more responsibilities outside of my immediate scope of expertise, I felt trusted to do more and worked hard to make sure that I delivered. Looking back, I think as soon as I understood I had achieved a certain level of success, my view of success and focus on continued growth shifted towards the pathway I was creating to empower and encourage others behind me to succeed.
