After moving around the country for the last 4 years, I am proud to call the Queen City home.

As a lifelong fan of motorsports, Charlotte has always been a place where I wanted to live and work. I am originally from cold and snowy Rochester, New York. My career started in 2012 at WBKO-TV in Bowling Green, Kentucky. I was a general assignment reporter, but was able to cover many motorsports stories. I was the first reporter inside the GM Corvette Assembly plant to see the brand new Corvette C7 being built. In 2013, I made the move to the Midwest and WICS-TV. I continued to cover motorsports whenever I could, including the ARCA Racing Series at the Illinois State Fair. I was ecstatic when FOX 46 called and I made the move to Charlotte.

While I enjoy the motorsports this area has to offer, I am glad to also be telling the stories of those in our community. While not chasing stories I enjoy working out, checking out the city and exploring new restaurants. I love hearing from viewers. Feel free to e-mail me at:

Late summer heat, poor air quality keeping doctors busy

It feels like summer in September with highs hovering near record territory. Locally the heat is causing problems for those with pre-existing lung conditions. An air quality alert was issued this week as temperatures continue to soar.
