Kathryn Eisman is a two-time Emmy nominated journalist, two-time bestselling author, and founder of luxury fashion sock line, HighHeelJunglesocks. She’s currently the fashion reporter for Fox LA’s Good Day LA (she lives in Los Angeles) and entertainment correspondent on Sunrise and The Morning Show, and has also worked as a journalist with E!, NBC in the US and Foxtel here in Oz.
