I decided I definitely wanted to go into TV when I was a junior in high school. I shadowed the Chief Meteorologist at a TV station in Orlando, and I fell in love with the news business.
I came to WAAY 31 in January 2017. During my time at the station, I have covered a variety of stories. I have traveled throughout the state, Georgia, and Tennessee to cover stories that have affected the people who live in North Alabama.
During my first few months at the station, I traveled to Atlanta when a church youth group's bus crashed that was headed from our area to the airport. I spent days talking to Church leaders and people on the bus when the deadly wreck happened.
I was in Montgomery when Mazda Toyota announced they were bringing a $1.6 billion dollar automotive plant. I talked with local, state, national and international leaders that were involved making Huntsville the home of the plant. The opportunity to cover the major announcement was just one that showed me that Huntsville is headed to be the biggest city in the state.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Florida where I studied Telecommunication News. During my time there I reported for UF's PBS affiliate news station and anchored the 5 o'clock newscast. I love living in the Rocket City and getting to know people in the community!
