A typical day in my life includes…

starting at 5:30AM until whenever I end: I’m reading volumes on current events, politics, pop culture, co-hosting a talk show, anchoring my own show, raising children, participating in one half of a great marriage, yoga and prayer.

I was born…

on an Army base in Atlanta, GA.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the colors of the desert – the stark difference between the arid landscape and the blooms in monsoon season.

I’m listening to…

Eastside – Halsey and Khalid.

My family…

is my inspiration.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

President Trump.

One thing I cannot live without…


When I was younger, I wanted to be…

who I am now.

The one person who motivates me is…

my mom…now from heaven.

The perfect day would be…

on the beach in Montauk, NY – partly sunny, 80 degrees, my kids building sandcastles and my husband and I dreaming about what’s next – I recently had a string of those days.

My first job was…

very first job? When I was an early teenager and my Aunt Ruby and Uncle Eddie owned a franchise 7 Eleven in Seattle, WA. I was their stock girl and Slurpee maker.

My favorite escape…

I purchase more shoes than anyone I know, so I would have to say shoes shopping.

My life…

is a work in progress.

I’m currently working on…

everything in a different order every day.


tell the truth.


I haven’t lived my whole life yet, so maybe someday I can answer that.

Favorite Quote…

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Biggest Dream…

I’m living it!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

dishonesty and laziness.
