"Set a goal so big that you can't achieve it until you grow into the person who can."
I've always dreamed of working at QVC and 11 years ago I wrote it down in my journal as a goal. It's so surreal to be here now! But it did take some practice and patience.
The past decade I've been in morning TV and some radio. Broadcasting has been such a rewarding career as I've been so humbled to be invited into people's homes the first part of the day, sharing a cup of coffee together, and talking about events affecting our world, our country and our communities.
My TV journey began at the age of 14 but professionally after college it started in Mason City, IA where I met this cute sports anchor Jeff, who became my best friend and later would become my husband.
And so the story goes...first comes the love....
(KIMT in Mason City, IA)
Then comes the marriage....
(Wedding day in Pawleys Island, SC)
Then comes the fur baby...our maltipoo, Turbo.
Then comes the baby in the baby carriage.
We're the proud parents of our 20 month old son. He's the light of our lives....there's no greater job than being a mama!
We are now expecting our second child at the end of July and we aren't finding out if our son will have a brother or a sister. But I am taking guesses based on the bump!
So with my first day on the air at QVC being June 30th, it will be a quick "get to know you" before maternity leave. But I'll be back before we know it...and maybe extra sleep deprived.
Now I should back up a moment, I was born and raised in the nicest place - Minnesota! Oh, ya sure, ya betcha! I grew up on a 20 acre hobby farm with my amazing parents and three siblings!
I've moved around a lot in my days in news - but I will always be a Midwest girl at heart!
After high school, I flew the coop and headed West for college where I graduated from Pepperdine University - go Waves!
For fun...I enjoy eating (who doesn't) I love to try new foods and restaurants! Traveling - I love experiencing new cultures and seeing other parts of our beautiful earth. Adventure - hello skydiving and flying small planes! And living an active lifestyle through fitness, hiking, biking and some fun runs (I like to get dirty as I'm a little tomboy at heart).
I owe all of life's blessings to God! He's so faithful and I'm beyond grateful to Him for allowing me to live out my dream of working at QVC. I prayed and prayed for this opportunity and now it's here. I'm honored and humbled to now get to do my favorite thing everyday -- shopping with my girlfriends! I look forward to becoming friends and doing some shopping together!
