I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and am the middle child, with two older brothers and two younger sisters. My friends say we're the modern-day Brady Bunch.
As a child, I did everything from ice skating, choir, acting, even basketball... and I was terrible at all of them! My basketball team won one game the entire season, because the opposing team didn't have enough players! Jokes aside, all of those things pushed me closer to my passion for journalism.
I always loved talking to people and retelling stories at family dinners. So, reporting seemed a natural fit to my family, but it took me many years and thousands of dollars of tuition to realize that. I graduated from Florida A&M University with a degree in Business Administration and later went to receive my Master's Degree at Governors State University in Media Communications.
My first reporting job took me to LA (Lower Alabama) in Dothan, Alabama. I anchored, produced, reported and edited stories at WTVY. While there, I received my first Associated Press award for Best Series on "Alabama's Immigration Debate." I am a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the National Association of Black Journalists.
I am excited to work in Huntsville at WAAY 31 and tell stories that are important to you. If you see me around town, say hello because I haven't met a stranger yet.
