In a world filled with filters and Photoshop, I take pride in being real. I struggle with insecurities, my weight, and keeping my car clean.
My parents were always told I was a great student but that I talked way too much. Imagine their relief when I turned talking into a profession. My radio career began in my hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan, ultimately leading me to Seattle and a CMA Award Nomination. In 2018, I transitioned into television as a Morning Features Reporter on Q13 News.
I’m a woman with curves and problem areas that I like to hide. My idea of style is confidence and thus launched Charlie Pete, an online retail store that proudly offers style to those ranging from size small to 3XL.
I’m a social media addict, a mental health advocate, and a dog mom. If I’m not petting puppies or posting a behind-the-scenes peek into my life on Instagram, I’m more than likely in the stands cheering on the Seahawks or scouring the internet for the trendiest and most inexpensive fashion finds.
Understanding that some days are better than others, I truly believe if we share our struggles, we’ll not only be kinder to each other but more importantly, to ourselves. Welcome to my little piece of the internet.
