And, I’m passionate about sharing inspiring stories about women who are changing their lives in a BOLD way.

I recently turned 51, sparking new experiences, insights and questions about this midlife moment.

Putting on my journalist’s hat, I started talking to experts, listening to other women’s stories, and learning more about navigating my next “now what” in more bold and powerful ways. Out of these explorations and experiences, I realized how many other women are facing the same questions, challenges, and opportunities to move forward with confidence, courage, and curiosity.

Coming Up Next

I launched Coming Up Next, a podcast series to support women moving through midlife changes, menopause, new career directions and all the other new choices and possibilities that women face at this time in their life.

I curate experts, thought leaders and ordinary women’s stories about doing extraordinary things to provide inspiration and tips for listeners so that they too can approach their own #nowwhat more successfully and confidently.

While reporting is my profession (honored to have earned 13 Emmys for reporting on Hurricane Sandy, the Columbia Shuttle crash and the Afghanistan war), my passion is telling women’s stories that often happen behind the headlines. I have travelled with WPIX-TV/UNICEF to document its work, focusing on the struggles faced by women and families in areas of the world most of us will never see for ourselves. I bring their stories into homes and hearts, and reveal how these women transform their lives in the midst of significant life changes.

I’m no stranger to big life changes myself. After co-founding a matchmaking business in New York City with my then-husband, we went through a very public divorce. I chose to speak to women about how to navigate endings and create new beginnings. My book, The New Single, deliver tools, insights and hope to other women in the midst of their own divorce experience. I have appeared on HLN, The Insider, The Talk, the Today Show, Good Morning America, Lifetime, A&E, and the CBS Early Show in support of this mission.

Having lost my mother to breast cancer in 1990, I’ve been a long-time advocate of educating women and their families about this devastating disease, giving all women a chance at early detection. I’m also involved in a range of charitable organizations, including the ADAPT, Best Buddies, SHARE Cancer Support, Let's Talk Menopause and North Shore Animal League. I’m also a member of New York Women In Communications (NYWICI,) New York Women in Film and Television (NYWIFT) and the Alliance for Women in Media.
