She produced documentaries and major market TV news programs, covering the people and events making news, including Presidents, major court cases, the world’s first artificial heart implant, a deadly Air Canada plane crash, John Glenn’s second space flight, and the Boston Marathon.

This spawned national news coverage, unraveling corruption in the FBI and Justice Department, and led to a $101.7 Million federal court ruling against the government.
