People often know me with a bubbly and outgoing personality who will talk to anyone.

My love for journalism started as a love for weather. When I was younger, I was scared of storms so much, my mom would turn on The Weather Channel before I went to bed to see where the storms were that night. The fear of weather and storms turned into a passion that I could not ignore. After watching and learning so much about hurricanes and tornadoes, I felt that it was something I wanted to do with my life.

I went to Western Kentucky University to study Geography with a concentration in weather, and while there I found out the broadcasting program was very good. I decided to major in both Broadcasting and Geography. While at school, I worked with our student newscast as weather anchor, reporter, director, and producer. That is where I fell in love with news and added another passion to the list.

I interned with the CBS affiliate, WHIO-TV, in Dayton, Ohio for one summer and then twice during the winter months. This is what fortified my decision to be in the business. I loved the atmosphere and it showed me that this was exactly what I wanted to do with my life.

I graduated from Western Kentucky University in May 2013 and made Eastern Kentucky my home the next month.

People often know me with a bubbly and outgoing personality who will talk to anyone. I always tend to have an optimistic outlook on life and I love being around my family and chatting with friends.

I am so proud to make the mountains my home and I am so blessed with the opportunity to be the producer here in Eastern Kentucky.
