Hi everyone! I am originally from Redondo Beach, California and excited to be in Southwest Florida.
I graduated from Cal State University, Fullerton with a BA in Communications and a Minor in Radio-TV-Film. I worked at ABC 7 in Los Angeles for two years as a Production Assistant and Morning Traffic Producer. Always up for an adventure, I packed my bags and headed to the midwest to pursue my dream as an on-air broadcaster.
I worked at KFYR-TV in Bismarck, ND for two years as a Morning Anchor/MMJ. Originally from Southern California, it was a big adjustment getting use to the negative winter temperatures. Brr! Definitely happy to be back near a beach! I moved to the sunshine state to work for E.W. Scripps Company, but not at a traditional news station. Hello SWFL tested a lot of creative storytelling styles. This helped me take a different approach to covering stories, focusing on the amazing people of SWFL.
I started working at Fox 4 as a Multi-Media Journalist in December 2018. I’m excited to continue to tell stories that matter to the community.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy exploring everything SWFL has to offer, going to the beach, and catching a yoga class.
If you have any story ideas send them my way, I'd love to hear from you!
