I am a Mom, journalist, wanna-be chef. I love motivating people through my stories. I've been in the TV business for two decades and in Denver since 2002. I anchor a 4 1/2 hour show that starts at 45:30 in the morning. People always ask "how do you get up that early". My answer - I simply love what I do. Before Denver I worked in Dallas,TX, Pensacola, FL, Mobile, AL, Twin Falls, ID and Lincoln, NE.
I have covered major hurricanes along the Gulf Coast, moderated gubernatorial debates and interviewed political figures and Hollywood stars from around the world. I feel blessed to have been recognized with numerous awards for feature, medical and investigative reporting. I love photography, I started my career as a photographer/videographer and editor while attending the school of Journalism at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. I firmly believe that there is no greater compliment than to entrust a reporter with your story. It can be personal and sometimes difficult. I simply love telling stories that inspire.
Outside of work I spend a great deal of time in the community, volunteering and speaking to charitable groups. Before deciding on a career in Journalism I thought I would be a teacher. I took that passion for education into reporting about educational issues and then proposing a new school in my community. Lone Tree Elementary Magnet school now has hundreds of students and is one of the top-performing schools in the district with a focus on critical thinking and responsible citizenship.
My husband Tyler Tysdal and I have three children, a daughter in college, one in high school and an elementary-aged son.
Take a look around and send me feedback. I'd love to hear about you!
