First job: My first job in the news business was working at a small station outside of Washington, D.C., in Hagerstown, Md. It may have been my first job but we covered some big stories. It was a great place to get some real-world experience and I thrived there. I quickly moved up from reporter to anchor and stayed for over five years.

First salary: $18,500. This was tough to handle, but when you want something you are willing to do anything to get it.

My idol is: Robin Meade of CNN Headline News. She is so personable. I love her delivery.

Most embarrassing TV moment: Not being able to stop laughing after reading a pretty ridiculous story. Sometimes you just get a case of the giggles.

Highlight of my career: Getting my first job in news. I was working for the government at the time and I wasn't sure if I was going to get my break.

My favorite thing to do outside of work: Anything that involves my dog, Sophie. We love to walk and play outside.

Station: WNWO-TV, Channel 24

Age: 30

Hometown: Silver Spring, Md.

I think Toledo's best-kept secret is: Clothes Mentor. You can find great clothes here for way less than you'd even find them on sale at a retailer.

People may be surprised to know that I: wear slippers under the desk when I anchor the news.

In five years, I see myself: Doing the exact same thing. I love my job!

My dream job is: Being a news anchor. It's something I've wanted to do since I was in sixth grade. Right now, I am living my dream.
