Why are you participating?
I love getting involved with different charities in our community and helping to raise money! Breast cancer impacts so many lives and I think we can really make a difference.
How have you been involved with Susan G. Komen Dallas County?
I am a reporter for FOX 4 and we sponsor the Susan G. Komen Dallas Race for the Cure every year. It's one of my favorite days because the crowd is so fun and the stories we tell are very impactful.
What excites you the most about being a BigWig?
I love the idea of putting on a crazy wig and using my platform to get people talking--and donating. It seems like a fun and creative way to raise money and awareness. I'm always up for a challenge.
Do you have any personal experience with breast cancer?
My grammie was a breast cancer survivor. The women in my family are adamant about getting regular check-ups and doing self-exams. I've also met so many survivors over the years covering the Dallas Race for the Cure. Their stories have made me cry and they have inspired me.
