Each Monday, we will introduce an AWSM member as part of our “Member Mondays” initiative. Get to know some of your AWSM colleagues!
When did you join AWSM? I joined AWSM in 2015.
How has AWSM helped you? AWSM has helped me meet other women in the sports media business and a network of women who get it. Each conference I’ve been to has left me feeling empowered and encouraged. The paths many of us have chosen aren’t exactly sprinkled with rose petals but it’s work we’re passionate about and enjoy and when our time is up should be our choice.
Job/place of employment: I am currently an on-air talent at the American Sports Network where I serve as host and basketball analyst.
Previously: Reporter/Sports Anchor News at Channel 8/WJLA, Washington, D.C.
Residence (city): West Palm Beach, Florida
Favorite teams: Go home teams! Washington Football, Washingt Wizards, Washington Capitals, Washington Nationals, Georgetown (Hoya Saxa Forever).
Favorite sporting events: The Final Four, The NHL Winter Classic
Favorite sports venue: I’ve lived at the Verizon Center all my life and literally hooped in McDonough Arena on the Georgetown campus (insert heart emoji) Pauley Pavilion was a really cool fan experience. UD arena (Dayton) and Hagan Arena (Saint Joseph’s) have been my favorite work experiences.
