Professional experience: Started working for Capitol Broadcasting out of college, first at 99.9FM The Fan ESPN Radio before moving over to TV.

Education: BA in Journalism and Mass Communications and BA in Dramatic Arts from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Hometown: L aJolla, California… well, I was born there and like to claim it (you would too if you’ve been there), but have lived in Cary, NC, for the majority of my life with a stop in Chapel Hill and now Raleigh.

Playing days: I swam competitively since I could float but stopped to focus on enjoying college when I graduated from high school.

Most memorable moment in sports history: I’m going to have to go with a game that I got to experience and quite possibility the craziest football game ever. The 2007 Fiesta Bowl, where Boise State defeated Oklahoma. I went to see my childhood best friend play, Vinny Perretta, who played wide receiver for the Broncos. He told me before the game he was going to throw a touchdown but who woulda believed it – until sure enough he did, in overtime. It was the score before the Statue of Liberty play that won them the game. And yes that was the game where the football player proposed to the cheerleader, and yes they are still married. Did I mention that was Adrian Peterson’s first game back after he broke his collarbone earlier that season? Absolutely unreal game.

Favorite sports venue: Wrigley Field in Chicago, it’s a great park. If you get a chance, sit in the bleachers and take the time to explore Wrigleyville before or after a Cubs game. 

If I wasn’t working in sports I would be: An actress. It was the first goal until my parents told me I needed a back-up and I picked covering sports. A lofty back-up that quickly became the only thing I wanted to do.
