After receiving her Bachelor's degree in Mass Communications-Television Broadcast, Charisse worked as a Desk Assistant for WWL-TV in New Orleans. After quickly becoming bored with the desk routine, she began to write for WWL Eyewitness Morning News. That launched her onto the career path of becoming a Television News Producer at WLOX TV in Biloxi.
After just six months as a producer, she decided to turn a story featuring Pass Christian children with very artistic minds. To her surprise, that story aired the same night launching her on-air career. Although she enjoys feature stories, she loves a challenge and an occasional Investigative story.
You can now see Charisse's regional reports each week night on WLOX's CBS News at 6:30pm. She's also the producer behind WLOX's newest broadcast.
There are two things she swears no one can beat her in: a crawfish eating contest and a dance off! In her spare time, she loves to play with her Chihuahua/Yorkie mix, Joey, and randomly dance around South Mississippi.
