  • In my many roles including Evening News Anchor at Fox 59 WXIN, Indianapolis, business owner of FLS Media & Strategic Solutions, non-profit advocate, motivational speaker, host, soon-to-be wife, and hopefully one day-mother, I thank God for the many blessings, gifts, and talents he's given me, also understanding completely that to whom much is given much is required. It is my honor and my top priority to serve others and my whole-hearted commitment to make a positive impact in my community. Being an inspiration to young people and sharing my blessings is my passion!!

    I will update my blog frequently, so check back often!

    Lots of love,

Edge Mentoring taped a conversation with former NFL/ Colts Coach and NBC Sports Tony Dungy with CBS College Basketball’s Clark Kellogg on the importance of mentoring plus the challenges and victories that come with it.  He talked about his mentoring relationship with Mike Vick right now and some of the insights he’s learned over the years as a NFL coach, father, husband, and now commentator for NBC Sports.

Dungy’s new book ‘The Mentor Leader’ is out and it is AWESOME.  See why it’s getting rave reviews!!

Look for the Dungy-Kellogg interview and a big announcement from Edge Mentoring coming to Fox 59 in November!!
