Local 8 News anchor and multimedia journalist

When I drove into East Tennessee and saw the beautiful landscape I knew this was a place I wanted to call home. I moved here from Bowling Green, Ky, where I worked as an Anchor, Producer and Reporter at our sister-station, WBKO-TV.

I graduated from the University of Kentucky, with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and I'm hoping the avid Tennessee fans don't hold that against me!

In college I produced stories for ESPN-U and did many jobs at the UK Student News Network, including anchoring and reporting.

I interned for Texas Monthly Magazine, in Austin, TX. WTOL-TV in Toledo, OH and in Lexington.

I was born in Texas but grew up in a small Northwestern Ohio town called, Perrysburg.

In my spare time I enjoy exploring the outdoors and I love to catch a good football or basketball game.

Contact me anytime with story ideas or just to say hello!
