Meet Alita Guillen
An Anchor in Action:
Emmy Award-winning anchor was Alita's first career. From behind the camera in several major U.S. markets, Alita chased the big stories, headlines, and newsmakers. She turned that drive and never-quit attitude into chasing the little annoyances. Chasing them away, that is.
Greatest Skill in Life:
She can catch a mosquito in one swipe, a skill mastered while growing up in New England.
This Gadgit Girl is also a girl with a tool belt who gets it done. She once renovated her basement with the help of just one gal pal. Her proudest moment: when the two of them tore the old staircase down on their own. Oh, and did we mention that she did it after dropping the kids off in the morning and before going to work that afternoon? This girl’s got grit.
Alita comes by it naturally when it comes to inventing stuff. Her pops is an engineer with more than 50 patents to brag about. The only difference: Pops’ work is more complicated. Alita’s matches the Gadgit Girlz mantra: simple and ultra practical.
