Ever since she was a little girl growing up in South Jersey, Becky dreamed of a creative career in a dymnamic city like New York. In high school, she found her calling working on her high school’s local cable TV show, Monthly Rewind. She moved to New York in 2001 to pursue a degree in Film & Television at NYU’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. A 20-year-old graduate, she set her sights on working for Mark Burnett, whose Survivor had just become a big hit.
Becky began her TV career in NYC working as the assistant to the Executive Producer on Mark Burnett’s startup daytime venture with NBC, The Martha Stewart Show. She quickly moved to the field department, and after a staff shuffle left some vacancies, produced her first field piece at 22-years-old. After that, Becky never looked back. During her time with the show, she produced shows and segments across the U.S., Mexico, South America, Europe, and Asia. She worked with the world’s finest culinary minds including Grant Achatz, Dan Barber, David Chang, Daniel Boulud, and Jean-George Vongerichten. When the show moved to the Hallmark Channel, Becky became Senior Producer of Martha Stewart’s Primetime Specials, writing, producing, and directing hour-long holiday shows covering cooking, crafting, and gardening. During her time with MSLO Productions, she received two Daytime Emmy’s for her producing work. Additionally, she produced the hour-long Martha in Cappadocia episode for which Martha Stewart took home her own Daytime Emmy – her only hosting win for the run of the show.
Ready for a new challenge, Becky left MSLO Productions after 6 seasons to join the field team at The Chew before the show’s launch in 2011. She helped shape the direction of the field segments from the ground up, and became the show’s Supervising Field Producer in 2016. In addition to bringing inspiring food stories to viewers, Becky has produced segments with the show’s array of hosts everywhere from the Oscars to Walt Disney World to NASCAR races. She’s passionate about bringing viewers quality programming that’s visually beautiful, intellectually stimulating, and most of all, a whole lot of fun!
When Becky’s not roaming the country looking for inspiring stories, she’s at home cooking for friends in Brooklyn, taking classes to cure her insatiable curiosity, or dancing with Fuakata Cuban Salsa NY. She also enjoys visiting new restaurants and cataloging them here. (List is currently being updated and will return to the site soon!)
