This summer I became the Associate Producer of our show ‘Be Well.’ Here I am on set!

Watch us on News 12 and Cheddar News with our anchors Shannon LaNier and Elizabeth Hashagen.

To celebrate the holidays, Cheddar News‘ anchors Kristen Scholer, Hena Doba and I recorded a holiday promo that aired between our shows.

A few other promotional videos were recorded to celebrate the holiday season from our Cheddar team.

Last month, Cheddar organized the ‘Happy Hour’ event, which celebrated the fall original programming lineup.

The event included the launch of our new shows for Celebrity Lemonade Stand, Need2Know Headlines, Trending and Life on the Bright Side.

The event was hosted at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge at the Moxy Time Square.

I’m very excited to announce that I have started a new job at ‘Cheddar News!’

For the past decade, I have volunteered most of my time at the non-profit movie company, ‘Peers Partnership.’ For many years, I produced documentaries that helped spread awareness regarding the dangers of bullying, drugs and alcoholism.

A few months ago, I was hired as a booking production assistant. I will be booking talent and also taking photos of guests in studio. I am very excited to enter this new chapter in broadcast news!

Frank Reale is someone who is very close and special in my heart. He is a friend, a mentor and in a lot of ways a second father to me. We lost him due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

I first met Frank at BOCES in 2009 as I continued to pursue my dreams in television and radio. I was introduced to Peers Influence Peers by him and Buck Heller, who were looking for youth members to help spread awareness regarding the dangers of drugs, alcoholism and bullying.

I learned a lot from Frank and I quickly gained a second family through Peers Influence Peers Partnership. My world was completely wrapped around him and the company. If it wasn’t for Frank, I would have never had the chance to do what I did. He helped me evolve in media as he continued to believe in me.

I know for a fact that everyone at Peers Partnership will continue to remember every moment with Frank.

For years, I’ve had the opportunity to produce a handful of interviews at Peers Partnership. This year, the roles are being reversed!

Ariana Prontelli, a member of Peers Partnership, interviewed me regarding erasing hate and my coming out process in a new Peers Partnership documentary piece.

Additional information is coming soon!

I uploaded a reel that highlights my work through the years with Peers Influence Peers Partnership.

The footage in the video includes interviews that I produced from Chasing Life (2017) and High School: A Survivors Manual (2013).

The producer reel also includes an interview with Shane Bitney Crone from 2015.

My good friend Jess DeNoia and I had the opportunity to attend the 25th anniversary for the Peers Partnership ceremony. We were invited to speak on stage, so were very excited to prepare a speech that highlights our time working together.

We couldn’t help but reminisce on some of our favorite moments and hard work that was spent while creating these movies from the past few years. We would like to give a special thanks to Peers Influence Peers Partnership.
