I love both listening to and telling stories, preferably over a good meal with great company. While I don’t get to eat at the anchor desk, I feel so blessed to be given this opportunity to uncover and share stories that matter here in the Carolinas.

I started at FOX 46 News in July of 2015 after a reporting stint in Houston at KPRC 2 News. Before that I worked as the weekend morning anchor and reporter at KRQE News 13 in Albuquerque, N.M., and as a general assignment reporter at WBOC TV 16 in Salisbury, Md. I’ve covered everything from historic flooding in Houston, to Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, to the U.S. Department of Justice’s investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department.

I grew up in a suburb of Houston and attended Boston University, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism with a concentration in international relations. During college I was also what you may call a “professional unpaid intern.” When I wasn’t studying, I was interning in multiple newsrooms, including KTRK, WHDH and GlobalPost. I also spent a few months with the U.S. Department of State in Istanbul, Turkey.

I’m so excited to be back on the East Coast and near two of my loves: the ocean and the mountains. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the outdoors, traveling and volunteering around town. Not a surprise, I also love checking out different restaurants and trying out new recipes.
