A University of Central Florida graduate, she cut her teeth as an all-purpose correspondent at Sarasota’s WWSB.

Though Lawson can count interviews with His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and heavyweight champion the late Muhammad Ali as career highlights, her passion lies with helping young people to prosper, just as her mother and mentors supported her.
