I've been with the Eyewitness News team since August 2014. I'm excited to be able to stay in California and work in Bakersfield, close to my family and loved ones.

I was raised in Orange County, but I spent my last summer in Palm Springs with KESQ News Channel 3 and CBS Local 2. After my time in the desert, the hot summers here in Bakersfield really don't seem that hot. Some days it got up to 121 degrees in the Coachella Valley.

I graduated magna cum laude from Chapman University in three years with a degree in television and broadcast journalism.

When I'm not out in the field, I still like to spend time outdoors. I'm a proud Eagle Scout, so I'm excited about all of the hikes Kern County has to offer. I also enjoy both playing sports and going to games.

I've been a long-suffering Philadelphia Eagles fan my whole life, and I'm sure we have no plans to win a Super Bowl any time soon. Yeah, I'm one of "those" Philly fans. I boo pretty loud. I also root for the Anaheim Ducks and Philadelphia Phillies.

Don't hesitate to try to contact me, aherbets@bakersfieldnow.com.
