Moving Pictures


Laura Garcia Cannon

It’s not often enough that I get to get out of the anchor chair and go out and report. It’s where I got my start in this business and I think it’s important for every anchor to get out of the building and get into the community. I was excited to participate in NBC11’s Moving Pictures project.

My interview allowed me to spend some time with a woman named Tova Yaron. You may have seen her name on the spa she owns in Saratoga, but there’s far more to this woman than facials and pampering. Through her pictures we got a great look into her busy life. A life she created through a lot of hard work, determination and strength. Late in life she left her native Israel with three teenage kids to completely start her life over in America. What will. What determination. As an immigrant she came to this country with little, but now she will be the first woman to ever open her own spa within San Jose Fairmont Hotel this spring.

When I met with Tova she brought pictures of her previous life in Israel. A place she says will always remain in her heart. She shared her story of a wonderful childhood and giving two years of her life in the Israeli Army. I learned where her strength came from, and the lesson that you can achieve anything in life if you put your mind to it.
