Sharon is a graduate of the University of central Lancashire in Preston. She graduated with a 2:1 degree in journalism. She was a mature student - (though she didn't act it at times!)
After studying she freelanced for both the Irish News and Belfast Telegraph, then she was a sub-editor at the Daily Mirror despite some terrible spelling. Then she got a job as a reporter with the Irish News and two years later became their chief reporter.
She then moved to UTV and went in front of the camera, though she insists she's not a natural. She finds every day can be memorable in its own little way.
In her spare time she loves keeping fit, feeding her coffee addiction and the occasional dance.
Her phrase of choice is 'Let's check out of this cheap hotel'.
