I joined KBAK/KBFX in October 2012 as the weekend anchor and weekday reporter. I started my journalism career at WXVT, the CBS affiliate in Greenville, Miss., as the weeknight anchor/reporter. I covered a variety of stories when working in Mississippi, from the 2011 Mississippi River flooding to agriculture and health stories, as well as everything in between.

This isn't my first time in California, I graduated from California State University in Los Angeles in June 2010 with a B.A in broadcast journalism. I was more than happy to move back to the West Coast, which I truly love!

I grew up in Reading, Penn., about an hour from Philadelphia. I've also lived in Bethany Beach, Del., and Flagstaff, Ariz. Moving around the country was a wonderful opportunity that allowed me to experience the diversity of the United States.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my daughters Carrigan and Juliette, reading, talking and spending time with friends and family, yoga, and exploring my new environment.
