My favorite thing is going for exploring the city with my husband. When we have time we’ll spend a Sunday walking for hours exploring neighborhoods, shops and trying new restaurants”. On the homefront, how has being a career woman effected your family life, and how do you keep it in balance. My family comes first above anything in my life. I am extremely close to my parents; they along with my husband are my biggest supporters and all push me to further my career. My job is demanding, it means constantly being on blackberry and at times missing huge family events but everyone around me is pretty used to it now. My husband is my rock. He’s a big news junkie and has worked and lived all over the world. I’ll often call him when I need context on an international breaking news story.

For the younger generations intending to enter this field what would you say to be prepared for most? Be prepared for people to say ‘no’, to brush you aside.The key is you can’t give up, you can’t get discouraged. I truly believe if you want something enough, you can have it. Be hungry, work hard and smart. Think outside the box. Always be available. It’s not just about being on TV. Most of my job is researching, writing, interviewing. It’s very important to have a good base. Viewers and listeners are smart. They know when you don’t know your subject matter.

“ I’m a bit of a thrill seeker. I've gone skydiving, white water rafting, scuba diving - even repelled down a 200 foot waterfall”.
