What's more important than good health? My name is Lila and for 25 years as a television health reporter, I've worked to inspire people to live a healthier lifestyle. And I don't just talk the talk, I walk the walk or even run the run! I truly have a passion for everything "Good Health."
As a news anchor, I worked in Michigan, Maryland and Massachusetts. I love giving people news they can use. I tell the stories that get people to really think about their health and wellness: what they eat, how they exercise and how to better take care of themselves.
For the last five years I've been working on the award-winning "Discover Remarkable" series sponsored by Saint Joseph Mercy Health System, investigating the latest medical breakthroughs and uncovering truly remarkable patient stories.
And when I'm not working, I'm still focused on good health. I run marathons, do triathlons, waterski, paddleboard, snow shoe, hike…anything that gets me into the great outdoors. And I never turn down a challenge. Just a few years ago I swam the Straits of Mackinac (a five mile swim) to raise money and awareness for "Mentor Michigan." There's no challenge too great for my passion to live a healthy lifestyle. I even had a colonoscopy procedure performed on live television to urge others to talk openly about the topic and be sure to have a colonoscopy by age 50.
I serve on the Governor's council for physical fitness, working to get Michigan moving. I've hosted the opening ceremonies of "Detroit's Race for the Cure" for the last 20 years, working to raise awareness and money to put breast cancer out of business! And I also serve as President of "Kids Kicking Cancer", teaching children with cancer breathing techniques and martial arts to help them build their strength and decrease their stress as they battle their disease.
A few other things you may not know about me: I'm an avid motorcyclist and served as Michigan's motorcycle safety ambassador. I'm also a certified yoga instructor (now is a perfect time for you to pause and take a good deep breath)
