Kizzy has always had an interest in travel, the African Diaspora, and communications. She has studied acting, singing, and all types of dance. Kizzy's favorite pastimes include reading, writing, public speaking, and continual self-improvement! So she's happy to be working at What's The 411, where she can combine her myriad interests all in one show. It's all the more exciting since Kizzy began her career in communications with the television show, What's The 411, directly after graduating from Hunter College. Kizzy sees this as a way to further the brand and bring the show's unique take on entertainment and lifestyle to a whole new audience. In her original role at What's The 411, she wrote stories for the show's weekly newsletter and the website. Later she conducted on-camera interviews with celebrities such as Queen Latifah and John Leguizamo, in addition to many others.

The travel bug eventually hit Kizzy and brought her to the Dominican Republic where she studied Spanish and had the unique opportunity to work at the radio station, Supra FM, as a guest host commenting on current events in Spanish. As great an experience as that was, Kizzy couldn't stay away from her beloved NYC too long and so she returned to work on show development for Backdrop at the Emmy award-winning TV station NYC-TV.

Kizzy's love of Latin culture and her own West Indian culture, led her to work as a travel and cultural events correspondent at the internet show, En La Escena. She then worked at MTV in product development for all Viacom web brands. Kizzy also hosts and produces her own show, Make It Happen Now!, which airs on BCAT. Kizzy is looking forward to expanding not only her repertoire but her perspective and that of What's The 411's viewers, by bringing the best of hot NYC events that expand your mind, work your body and stir your soul!
