Time on Board: ’15-’17
“TV at times can be a grind getting shows prepared and making deadlines. Being a part of the board and NATAS provides some inspiration to keep pushing and striving for success. It is also an exciting chance to be rewarded for your hard work and to see the talents of other journalists.”
