I decided I wanted to get into TV news at a very young age. I always watched my dad report and anchor growing up. Immediately I was attracted to the news business and knew that's what I wanted to pursue. I am happy to say that I am a third-generation News Reporter/Anchor.
My first job was close to home. I worked for the CBS station, WCBI in Columbus, Mississippi for nearly three years. I started my career there while I was attending Mississippi State University (go dawgs!). While in Columbus, I learned a lot and had the opportunity to cover a variety of stories; from a possible active shooter on the campus of MSU, to a Tupelo Police Officer killed on duty days before Christmas.
After my time there, I knew I was ready for the next step in my career, which landed me in the Rocket City!
At WAAY, I get to anchor and report which lets me connect with you in the community. Coming to Huntsville in 2016 was one of the easiest decisions to make. My family enjoys visiting Huntsville and doing things like watching the Havoc play hockey and enjoying the different food trucks.
I am so happy to continue my career in Huntsville and I can't wait to see what the future holds!
