I first want to say it's an honor to work in the Miami Valley as ABC 22 and FOX 45's weekend anchor/reporter. I am an Ohio native and grew up in Northeast Ohio. I'm from an area now referred to as the rust belt, which is Youngstown. Dayton reminds me a lot of home, which is why I think I love this area and the hard-working blue collar people who live here.

I graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in journalism. I am a true Buckeye fan, and bleed scarlet and gray. I love sports in general, but to be honest, I am not at all athletic.

While an Ohio native, I have worked at several stations in my career as a journalist. I started my career earlier than most. My senior year of college I was already working in my field. I had the privilege of working at WSYX/WTTE in Columbus, Ohio. I couldn't have asked for a better place to start my career, and better people to work with. After leaving Columbus, I moved out of state for the first time in my life. I was fortunate enough to get a morning anchor position at a small station in Winchester, Virginia. If you've ever been in the area, it is absolutely stunning.

I recently got married and we have three incredible dogs. I am an animal lover, and some might think I go a little overboard when it comes to my furry friends. But I figure I can spoil them until I have kids.

While not at work, I love reading, spending time with my family and on occasion, traveling.

I am a proud part of our station's Fighting Back franchise. We are highlighting how people in the community are fighting back against the crime in their neighborhood. You can watch my reports Monday through Thursday nights. We are always looking for story ideas so please feel free to contact me with any!
