My hometown is Niagara Falls, New York. I have a big family, and was born the 5th of 7 children. I previously worked in Buffalo, NY in radio and at WGRZ-TV as an Entertainment Reporter. I moved to St. Louis in the late 80’s. Since living in St. Louis, I’ve worked at Y-98 radio, KLOU Radio, KMOX Radio.

I started at KTVI in 1992 on a part-time basis and came on board full-time in 1994 in the Sports Department as a reporter. I was named Weekend Sports Anchor shortly afterwards. I’ve had the pleasure of covering the Blues during the Hull, Keenan, Gretzky era…the Cardinals during Mark McGwire’s Home Run Race and the Rams, from their arrival in St. Louis to two Super Bowl appearances.

I found a new home on the FOX 2 News in the Morning in the summer of 1999 and have been here ever since. In addition to anchoring the morning news between 5-7am, I also contribute to Contact 2, Fit on FOX , Missouri Lawyers Weekly, FOX Files reports, Rams Pre-season football and the American Idol Finals.
I am also proud to be the co-author of a children’s book called: “The Tooth Fairy Palace.” I wrote it with my daughter when she asked the question: “Mom, what does the Tooth Fairy do with the teeth after she takes them from under the pillow?”. It’s a fun story as well as some good advice and lessons for little ones regarding good dental health. For more information on the “Tooth Fairy Palace”, either e-mail Randi, or click on the sidebar Web link.

I love: My family, watching sports (especially football), golfing with my husband, bird watching (I’m a “bird-nerd”), my three golden retrievers, cat and fish pond, the color red, staying at home, veggies, goofy movies (favorite: It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad Mad World), jamming to music, a good wine, laughing with friends, family dinners, being anywhere near a lake or ocean, quirky people, American Idol and naps.

I am also very active in various charitable organizations. I am proud to contribute my time as an emcee or host for many charitable events.
