When did you start working here?
Where else have you worked?
Before coming to this Tri-State, I worked for another Tri-State station, WFIE-TV, 14 News, in Evansville. I covered news in western Kentucky. I also worked as a reporter at WVLT-TV, CBS, in Knoxville, TN. When I was in college, I interned at WECT-TV in Wilmington, NC!
Where did you go to college?
Western Kentucky University. Go Tops!
What are you most proud of when it comes to your work?
I love doing stories that really make and impact and can change people’s lives for the better. I also enjoy enlightening the community on issues that matter to them.
What are you most proud of in your own life?
I’m living the dream! I’ve wanted to be a news reporter since third grade. I’m so grateful to be continuing my dream with 9 On Your Side!
What do you love about living in the Tri-State?
I love that there’s so much to do in Cincinnati! Plus, the people here are friendly and I’ve made a lot of good friends!
What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions?
All the communities have a different vibe to them. I love all the ones I’ve been to! My favorites would have to be OTR, Mt. Adams, and Newport on the Levee.
All time favorites (movies, music, books, shows, etc…)
My favorite movie has to be The Sandlot! I can almost quote the entire movie! I’m also a big Walking Dead fan. So much so, my buddy and I went to Georgia to tour the town where they filmed the series!
