The aspect of the job that she enjoys the most is being able to share the stories that touch our hearts.Stories about ordinary people doing the extra-ordinary, about people succeeding in spite of the odds, and about people reaching out to give of themselves.We don't get to tell enough of those stories, but they are out there and when we find them, sharing them with our viewers reminds us that news is more than the events of the days, it's also about who we and what we are as people..
