Position: Weekend News Reporter/MMJ

When did you start working here?
June 2017 Where else have you worked? I started working as a Sports Multimedia Journalist in Anchorage, Alaska back in 2012. I spent a year there, and then worked 3 years as a News Multimedia Journalist at WDTN-TV in Dayton, Ohio.

Where did you go to college?
Western Kentucky University. I'm a proud Hilltopper!

What are you most proud of when it comes to your work?
I enjoy putting viewers in the moment. I want you to feel like you were there. My goal is for you to meet the folks that make the Tri-State so great.

What are you most proud of in your own life?
I've made some pretty big moves (i.e. Alaska), but I've never lost sight on where I wanted to be, and what goals I've wanted to achieve.

What do you love about living in the Tri-State?
What's not to love? I was born and raised in the Tri-State. I love being able to meet people every single day that make our communities what they are. I've been around the country, and I know there's really no place as great as home.

What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions?
I'm a big fan of Braxton Brewing Company, and several other breweries in the area. I've been a Reds and Bengals fan since the days they were playing at Riverfront Stadium. When it comes to a college team -- you can expect me to root for Western Kentucky University.
