I was born and raised in a small town just north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and decided as a child I was going to be a news reporter. I attended Robert Morris University where I earned a bachelor's degree in journalism and a minor in American history in May 2015. I made the move to Gillette, Wyoming as a reporter just weeks after graduation and have since lived and worked as a reporter in Rapid City, South Dakota and most recently, anchored a morning show in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Although the warmer weather was nice, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to join the WHIO team and work closer to home. When I'm not reporting, I'm with my furbabies, Louie and Gabana Grace, visiting family back home or exploring one of the many parks in Dayton. I look forward to telling your stories.
