Needless to say, I wasted no time in returning her call. After talking through the details we agreed to meet at the Our Towns ReStore in Cornelius the next day. Now, here's a little secret; this wasn't my first experience with the news media. As a Registered Dietitian who worked in School Foodservice, during the height of the childhood obesity epidemic, for a large contract foodservice company, I've been afforded some pretty awesome media training in the past. However, I never would've imagined that those skills would come in handy with my new venture. You just never know.

I took her through most of the items in the basket (and in my car) and then we walked the store to see what other treasures we could find. Quite frankly, it was hard to tell when we were taping and when we were just talking. Of course, my news producer little sister informed me that you're ALWAYS taping. ; )
I really did have a blast and I was pretty pleased with how the segment came out. See for yourself.
There's also a story featured on the website. Click HERE to link there.
I'm so thankful for my affiliation with the Metrolina ReStores. Their PR team, Rachel Sutherland Communications ROCKS. We've got some great things in store for you guys, so be sure to stay tuned in 2014!
