It would wind up being the last season, yes that 9th season, but the work quickly began to pour in afterwards. She became Jon Lovitz’s assistant on a pilot, and then on NewsRadio, not before landing a production assistant job on Melrose Place. Her talents and tenacity led her to become an Associate Producer on shows like National Enquirer TV and the Style Network’s The Look for Less and Stylemaker, then to becoming a Producer for TV Guide Channel.
