I decided I wanted to be a reporter early on in my high school career. After shadowing an investigative reporter at a local station in Nashville I was hooked on news and how it could make an impact on people's lives.
I'm originally from Nashville, Tennessee and studied Broadcast Journalism and Political Science at Penn State. I love Penn State so much my dog is named Penny. "We are!" During college I had local news internships with FOX17 Nashville and NBC Washington. I also was a producer/reporter/anchor for the Penn State newscast Centre County Report.
I am so excited to tell the stories of people here in the Huntsville area and learn from my colleagues here at WAAY31!
