Home sweet home! I feel so blessed to begin my career with 13ABC, in a city that I've known my entire life. I try to dip my hands into a little bit of everything. I joined 13abc in February 2007, while in college, as a broadcast technician. As an aspiring journalist, I realized the 13abc news team is the best. I knew it would be a wonderful place to work and grow. So from there, I moved forward as an assignment editor and part-time reporter. It doesn't end there folks! You can now catch me reporting news, traffic updates and also working behind the scenes in the newsroom. I'm so grateful to be able to work with such amazing people, that have been so helpful to me during my early career.
I graduated in May 2009 from The University of Toledo (Go Rockets!) with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Communications. Yes, I'm a "Rocket Fan" and proud to support the midnight blue and gold. While at UT, I worked behind the scenes, anchored and reported for UT10News. I couldn't get enough of 13abc, so I interned in the newsroom. It was a wonderful experience that helped me pursue my career goals. Outside of the classroom, I was a UT Cheerleader for four years for both football and basketball.
I'm originally from Oregon, Ohio and graduated from Clay High School. I love being so close to home! My family and friends mean everything to me. In my free time I enjoy working out, anything outdoors, sporting events (Notre Dame!) and of course socializing! I'm definitely a "people person" and love meeting new people and hearing your stories. I hope to continue to bring those stories you share to Northwest Ohio. God Bless!
