Dayton is my home: it’s the city where I started my career, met my husband and had our son Charlie. I’m proud to work at WHIO—a news organization with a historic legacy and employees who work hard and love what they do.
I’m not far from where I grew up. Bucyrus, home of the annual Bratwurst Festival, is just a couple hours north.
I started working at WBCO/WQEL, the local radio station, when I was 16—where I spent a lot of time board-operating Cleveland sports games. They let me choose the songs I played, which is why I’m such a fan of classic rock music. Later, I worked there as a morning news reporter. I really fell in love with television at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I reported and anchored at NewsLink Indiana before moving up to executive producer. I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in telecommunications as a news option with a minor in history. After graduation, I spent a year on a Fulbright Scholarship in South Sumatra, Indonesia teaching English and doing a lot of learning on my own.
I love telling stories in the Miami Valley, and I’m always looking for my next lead. Please reach out if you have an idea—or if you know a fun event my family and I need to check out! We love adventures.
