Illy or Intelligentsia? The most important decision I can make comes just before 3 am: Which kind of coffee will I have and will it be enough to get me through the first few hours of my day-- which by the time you're tuning us in, is the first few minutes of yours!
Having us on in the background while your day is starting is just part of your routine, much like figuring out what I'm going to wear the night before and what I'm going to snack on during commercial breaks (usually fruit and almonds) before going to bed is part of mine.
Giving you the news from 4:30 to 6 am to get your routine started is one of the highlights of my day. Telling you how you can be fit and healthy with the latest trends, exercises and diets is just fun for me, hopefully it is for you too. Speaking of fun, co-hosting Good Day DC starting at 9 am, is a blast. I'm guessing you're on your second cup of coffee by this point. You don't even want to know how many I've had by this point. Why doesn't Starbucks deliver?
Anyway, on Good Day DC we're giving you a little bit of news, and a lively discussion of what everybody is talking about around the water cooler. It's like happy hour, only in the morning. It's casual, fun, and great conversation. I hope you'll join in the discussion through Twitter (#GoodDayDC). We'd love to hear from you!
At the end of my day, which is your lunch hour, I'm hitting the gym and figuring out what healthy meals I can cook up in my kitchen. A little jazz music and some good fresh ingredients help me unwind and get me fueled for the next day.
The television broadcasting bug bit me while I was studying at Western Illinois University. A series of hands on internships and a Masters degree at the University of Illinois at Springfield in Public Affairs Reporting set me on the path to my first job as the Morning Anchor in Fort Wayne, Indiana. That was followed by a Weekend Anchor/Reporter job in Omaha, Nebraska, before I landed in Washington D.C.
