Good Morning! Remember me? Last time some of you saw me I was signing off as anchor of 13 Action News Good Morning and crying. What a send off. I left so I could be there for every moment of my kids last few years of high school. And boy was I ever. I haven't missed a football game, a wrestling meet, or band concert. It's been a really special time for our family.
I've also been busy writing a weekly newspaper column, blogging, and raising funds to build a weight room and wrestling room for Bedford High School. That was a life changing experience, seeing a community come together to build something for kids. I still get teary seeing kids using the facility. (Me crying again, oops.)
Doing all those things I developed an expertise in social media, especially how it can help you change your life. I wrote a book about it called Your Twitter Diet. Using social media I've been able to raise $250,000 for that weight room, cook with Paula Deen, and even lose twenty pounds.
But now that both the kids are off to college I realize I've been missing something. It turns out that something was YOU, the 13abc viewers and family. I started at WTVG back in 1996 and reported from everywhere in every weather. I bonded with Toledo viewers on the morning show and have really missed that connection. Luckily they kept a chair warm for me here!
These days I'm hosting Full Plate the cooking and lifestyle show that aims to help you lighten your Full Plate. It airs on Sunday at 12:30 and online all the time. I am also the MomsEveryday Host in Toledo and Flint and I contribute as a panelist and a reporter to the nationally syndicated MomsEveryday Show that airs in Toledo at 12 on Sundays. right before Full Plate.
In my spare time I also earned certifications from the National Association of Sports Medicine as Fitness Nutrition Coach and a Weight Loss Specialist certification from the Sports Trainers Association. I've been quoted by Oprah.com, Shape, and even More Magazine for my expertise in social media and lifestyle. Visit with me on all my social media channels!
