Traffic Anchor, CBS 11 News This Morning
I think when people watch me on the news, they expect me to act a certain way off camera. I wish I had a dollar for every person who’s told me, “You’re so much more down to earth than what I expected.” Sure, I grew up in Southern California, but my parents rented all the modest houses we lived in and my mother took a second job every Christmas to afford gifts for me and my brother. I went to a pricey private university in an affluent area of Orange County, but what people don’t know is that I paid my own way through college. In fact, I’ve worked really hard for everything in life, and that has given me not only a sense of humility, but also an appreciation for even the smallest things.
