In real life ET is Tucson News Now's morning anchor ( She wakes up at the ungodly hour of two a.m. to do this and regularly wonders why. Honestly, who watches the news at 4:30 in the morning? Go back to bed! But she loves her job, the people and it keeps her in the black so she'll keep doing it- And taking naps. Naps are great. She also preforms with the Tucson Improv Company in an attempt to make people laugh. Mostly, it's just an excuse to hang with people who actually ARE funny. She volunteers with the Junior League, fills in coaching at CF Now and is constantly daydreaming of her next out of town adventure. Sometimes her main man, Herbie (a pug) joins her on these.
