1) When I was 8-years-old, I co-hosted America's Thanksgiving Day Parade with Chuck Gaidica & Carmen Harlan right here in the D! 

2) I'm the voice of the "Weather Girl" in Grand Theft Auto IV; Simmer down, boys ... All of my "dirty talk" was totally scripted. 

3) I was Valedictorian of my high school class (Grosse Ile High School, Go Red Devils!) and also #1 in the journalism school at Butler University in Indianapolis.  Yes, I'm a self-proclaimed DORK. 

4) I color-coordinate all of my clothes.

5) Only a few days before I took the job with Channel 955, I was selected to be a part of ABC's The Bachelor. No roses for me! 

6) I have an obsession with cupcakes and donuts. 

7) I once filled in for Kelly Ripa on "LIVE! with Regis & Kelly." 

8) I got married at the historic Ford Piquette Plant (where the Model Ts were made)

10) I have two littles: Lucy Grace (4/8/14) and Smith Lyle (6/4/17)!
