Who has been your greatest influence and motivator in your success in the field of your career?
There are so many fantastic women who have paved the way for a number of us in this business. Lesley Vissor, Linda Cohn, and Andrea Kramer, just to name a few. My motivation is to represent women in the sports broadcasting industry in a fashion that makes others proud. I’m always striving for greatness, never settling for average, and always wanting to set the bar, especially when it comes to covering the NFL, as well as hosting sports talk radio.
You have played women’s professional football from 1998 to 2002, playing the majority of that time for the Miami Fury & played in the WPFL championship your final season with the Florida Stingrays. How has your journey been being a professional football player?
The five years I played women’s professional football was five of the best of my life. To compete at that level was amazing. The lessons I learned in the heat of battle were priceless. The friendships that I will cherish for a lifetime, with the women I went to war with will forever be special.
I was truly blessed to be a part of those teams. That experience helped me to become the person I am today.
