Whether backstage with Bono, live from the red carpet, or holding politicians’ feet to the fire, for me it’s always been about finding that fresh angle, asking the right questions, and delivering an engaging story.
I’ve done hundreds of interviews with celebrities, newsmakers, royalty and regular folk, covering everything from news and entertainment to lifestyle content.
I’ve produced, reported and anchored for 5 networks including CTV and Citytv, and (this is where I brag a bit) was given a Toronto Sun Readers Choice award for Favourite Entertainment TV Reporter two years in a row. I thrive in the live environment and have hosted many big broadcast events including the TIFF Star! Schmooze, and “Live! At the Genies”.
I can also be frequently found on stage acting as Emcee or Moderator for a variety of live events.
In case you are wondering, I’m more than a talking head. I equally enjoy producing, and have worked with many businesses and organizations that understand the value of good storytelling. I pull from my journalism experience to deliver the content a brand needs, whether it be in writing, through video or by podcast. I will cast, coach, cajole, create and even deliver a cameo if needed.
When I’m not creating, I’m a media + public speaking coach, and am passionate about working with professionals and future stars who want to BeWellSpoken whether it be on stage, in the boardroom or in front of the camera. I believe everyone is capable of being an outstanding speaker!
My husband and I are co-authors of Scratch Your Buts Seven Words That Get in The Way, a guide to a becoming a better communicator.
I have served as an instructor for Centennial College, The Centre for Creative Communications, and received the Alumni of Distinction Award. (yep bragged again)
