I am so thrilled to be back in my beautiful home state of North Carolina, bringing you the news at 5 PM daily!
I am no stranger to the Carolinas-- I was born and raised about an hour down the road from Charlotte!
I am so grateful to be able to do what I love in the place I call home. The saying goes, "find a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life." I'm so lucky to have found an occupation that echoes that saying.
I fell in love with Journalism at a young age, and my career began to unfold at the University of Florida (GO GATORS!). There, I worked as a reporter for ABC News on Campus and was very involved at WUFT and WRUF. That's where I won my first Edward R. Murrow award for a news documentary on empty food banks.
Following graduation, I began my career as a journalist in Big Sky Country-- working as an anchorand reporter for the CBS affiliate in Bozeman, Montana. Following my time in the most beautiful state on earth, I ventured to Springfield, Missouri-- where I spent five years covering a wide range of topics. There, I won several awards for my work in breaking news and investigative reporting.
I have a passion for sharing people's stories, and I believe together-- we can truly make a difference in the world. Journalism is not only about digging for and sharing facts-- it's also about giving a voice to the people who otherwise wouldn't have one.
When I'm not bringing you the news-- you can usually find me hiking a mountain, enjoying a concert, playing music, shopping, traveling, working out, laying on a beach, spending time with friends and family, or cheering on the Florida Gators and Carolina Tarheels!
I want to hear from you. Please let me know YOUR story-- and I'll be happy to help tell it. Feel free to email me or reach out to me on social media. See you Monday through Friday at 5 PM on FOX!
