I've been with Cox Media Group Ohio since November 2018. 


I come to WHIO with more than 8 years of reporting experience under my belt. I previously worked at KAKE News in Wichita, Kansas for 4.5 years. During my time there I covered anything from politics, natural disasters, crime and sports. One reporting experience I'll never forget during my time there was traveling to Texas to cover Hurricane Harvey in Houston.

My resume also includes working at KAGS-HD News in Bryan/College Station, TX and KSNT in Topeka, KS. 


I'm a native Texan, born and raised in Houston. I'm Houston proud! So how did I get into the TV business? Growing up, every morning before school my parents ALWAYS had the news on. After school, the TV was on the local news. That's when I realized I wanted to be a journalist. I love being able to share someone's story. 


I graduated from Kansas State University in 2010 with a major in broadcast journalism and minor in leadership studies. 

While I'm far from home now, you can count on me rooting on my Houston Astros (2017 World Series Champs!), Texans (Who doesn't love JJ Watt?) and the Rockets. You'll even spot me wearing Kansas State Wildcats gear! If you can't tell, I LOVE sports. 

When I'm not watching sports, I love checking out local eateries and traveling to visit family and friends.
