Education: I hold a BFA in Production Management from The Theatre School at DePaul University (say that three times fast!)
How long have you worked at Harpo? I am coming up on my 9th anniversary at Harpo. I started out as a Runner for The Oprah Winfrey Show, which is a fancy term for the person who runs all over Chicago to round up the random and crazy things that a television show might potentially need.
Who would play you in a movie? Shaun White. He understands the daily emotional trauma inflicted by my unruly red hair.
Favorite SoulPancake episode: I love, love, love “Heart Attack.” Everyone needs a random act of kindness and love sometimes!

This movie hits a real spiritual nerve with 6 year old "Hushpuppy" as the main artery.
Can't say enough about it. That's why I'm doing a whole show on it. Hope you see the movie then watch the people who made it happen on Super Soul Sunday live on OWN and streamed around the world on Facebook and Oprah.com 11a ET/PT.

This Sunday, Oprah is sitting down with the director and stars of her new favorite movie, Beasts of the Southern Wild. Filmed in southern Louisiana, the film examines how we are all little pieces of a big, big universe.
And no place better reminds us of that than the Louisiana Bayou. Spend some time down south and think about the part you want to play in this world.
"Super Soul Sunday" airs at 11 a.m. ET/PT on OWN. You can also watch from anywhere in the world on Oprah.com, Facebook.com/OWNTV or Facebook.com/SuperSoulSunday.
