I’ve been fighting for consumers for 13 years. I started out behind the scenes, and have worked my way in front of the camera. My stories have exposed fraud, shut down businesses, sent people to jail, led to class action lawsuits, and legal action from Attorneys General.
My efforts have saved South Bend, Kansas City, and Cleveland consumers hundreds of thousands of dollars. One consumer won more than a million dollars in a lawsuit that focused on a ripoff that I uncovered. I look forward to helping consumers in West Palm Beach — the epicenter of consumer schemes. You can watch my Contact 5 Consumer Watchdog stories on WPTV – Florida’s #1 news station.
I’ve won two Emmy’s, and three regional Edward R. Murrow awards for my investigations. I’ve also received six other Emmy nominations. My stories have been recognized by the Ohio Associated Press, Kansas Association of Broadcasters, and twice by the Indiana SPJ.
My career began behind the scenes at ESPN, and a highlight included covering the Women’s World Cup in 1999.
I like to fight for what’s right in the community and support organizations. I’ve been a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters for over six years. I also work with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
