This weekend I was invited to a Panel Discussion for broadcast professionals. Presented By: Good News Foundation. Held at the Beverly Hills Paley Center for Media.

      My cousin Mary knows my story about life after my modeling career and how I transitioned my life. She said I think you will relate to these women. She invited me. She was right, I was so on the same page!

      It was so much fun, my cousin Mary {Seated left with pony tail} was on the panel along with three other women.
      Mary Grady: {Cousin} : Anchor women -reporter CBS KCal-TV LA,KCBS-TV.
      Susan Campos: MSNBC, reporter anchor/today show.
      Lonnie Lardner: Anchor women-ReportingLa Nashville, Chicago, Little Rock.
      Kelly Lange: NBC-CBS-2-NBC-4 and hosted her own Talk show women to women.
      The panel was made up of all these AWARD WINNING Women.
      Each told their stories and what they are doing today.Very interesting how they each have discovered their next phase and are extremely successful.
      I loved being there listening to my cousin Mary hearing things I didn’t know about her career.
      OMGosh I have so much respect for these women whom I met. They didn’t have it easy and it was a tough road. A career that only the strong survive. They get thrown into every kind of situation and you better have street sense and the ability to think on your feet and be able to survive and still make your deadline and get the story.
      I had no idea, I so enjoyed the panel and meeting all these powerful women. Their discussion was candid and honest. I am so proud of them all!
      Mary Hart stopped by along with many other women in the News!
      They loved that I was taking pictures and I asked if I could share and they said yes!
      After words we had Cupcakes!
      Enjoy my photos:
