After a short stint in California, it was off to the Midwest as an investigative reporter for the Problem Solvers team at WXMI. She spent her days uncovering dishonest contractors, fraud, and injustices in the community that left people high and dry. She also got to anchor a variety of shows, and host Michigan's Most Wanted.
