Hey there, I'm Shmitty! You probably hear me if you've ever called the studio, given gas prices or looked for school closings! But I'm much more then the person that keeps Gary Allen and Steve Kelly in line.
I'm originally from Lansing and I still pride myself on the 'cap city'. I went to Grand Valley State University for broadcasting. Go Lakers! I graduated in 2009 and after an... interesting summer job hunting, I got the privilege to join the mighty WOOD and wake up with two incredibly knowledgable, witty and always hilarious guys. I love working with this morning team and giving you the News, Weather, Traffic and Sports you need! And now I can give you a glimpse into my world, so check back often!
Yesterday was a prime reason why I can't wait for Wednesday's trip to Grand Rapids Ophthalmology! This is my judging face...
I was judging myself. Yet again yesterday I waved and ran up to someone I THOUGHT I knew only to find it was a complete stranger because I wasn't wearing my glasses. So because I left my glasses at home, some lovely Grand Rapidian thinks I'm a creepy young lady stalking the streets of downtown. My excitement is only growing to get LASIK. Safe, fast and there's no way I'd be nervous with the staff that's going to be performing the procedure! I thought I'd be stuck in glasses for good (and waving to strangers would be a way of life) but Grand Rapids Ophthalmology and their incredible doctors are making this a thing of the past!
Hey, be thankful that soon, I won't accidentally run up to you excitedly and yell, 'I'm a hugger!' Yes, that happened. And we can all thank GRO for an end to that :)
