Title: Reporter

I’m originally from Detroit, Michigan. Michigan is truly one of my favorite places. The beautiful scenery and the kind people truly make it a one of a kind place.

From a young age I knew I wanted to be a journalist. I attended Michigan State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. I then continued my studies, receiving a diploma in Broadcast Media Arts from Specs Howard School of Media Arts. My schooling further confirmed my chosen career path.

I started my career as an Associate Producer at WDIV Local 4 News in Detroit, Michigan. That gave me a great introduction to the field. I then went on to WHIZ in Zanesville, Ohio where I was a Reporter and a full-in Anchor and Producer.

As much as I love Michigan, I hate the cold! I’ve always seen myself making my way to the south. I am excited to continue my career in the Tennessee Valley.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, Netflix binging, experimenting with makeup, shopping, and spending time with family and friends. I continue to hone my love for writing by blogging. I also enjoy traveling and hope to get to Greece sometime soon. If you see me around town ask me how I got my name!

I am excited to be in the Tennessee Valley and look forward to telling your stories.
