In Elementary school, I was chosen to be the morning anchor for the student newscast. That's when I learned how much I loved talking to people. As I got older, I became fascinated with how news reporters used creative skills to tell a story.
I'm originally from St. Petersburg, FL. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, FL with a B.S. Degree in Broadcast Journalism. During college, I interned at CBS News in New York City, working in student media and earning an SEJC award for "Best TV Hard News Reporter" an SPJ Mark of Excellence award for "Non-Fiction Magazine Article" and several other awards. I'm a member of the national Association of Black Journalists and Society of Professional Journalists.
In 2015, I moved to Georgia to work as a reporter/multimedia journalist for WGXA-TV in Macon, Ga. I was there until 2017 when I moved to Huntsville to work at WAAY.
