Born and raised in South Toledo. I believe a good cup of coffee can change the day.
I am happy to be working in my hometown! I joined 13ABC back in February 2007 and since then have been waking up with you 5 days a week. My journey started right out of college. I was lucky to start off as the weekend assignment editor, moved on to reporting and in December '09 joined the 13ABC weekend morning anchor team. You can catch me both weekday and weekend mornings bright and early.
I grew up in South Toledo and am a proud TPS Bowsher graduate. I have a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from Bowling Green State University and will forever be a Falcon.
From college television to time with PBS, my passion for storytelling has taken me many places. I am an Emmy-nominated journalist for best weekend newscast. In 2013, I spent 3 weeks taking place in a full- scholarship journalism exchange program in Germany and Belgium. In 2014, I was chosen as one of the 20 under 40 Toledo and have also received an award from the Ohio State Board of Education for excellence in education reporting.
Everyday I consider myself one of the lucky. I am pursuing my career at a station I watched as a kid and am surrounded by so many talented people.
I have served as a member of the Salvation Army Northwest Ohio Advisory Board since 2009. In my free time, I love being outside at the park, spending time with my family and traveling whenever possible.
I love meeting new people and telling your stories. If you have any ideas or just want to say hi, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
