Story
Tagline
As a general assignment reporter for more than 9 years at 11Alive News I've had the pleasure of covering a variety of stories and meeting people from virtually all walks of life.
Introduction

I particularly enjoy being "out in the field", doing live shots on everything from extreme weather to a city council meeting.

Before my tenure here at 11Alive News I spent three years at WBTV in Charlotte, North Carolina as a crime reporter. My first job took me to Pocatello,  Idaho where  I  was the executive producer and anchor of the first ever morning show at KPVI-TV. 

While I grew up in Southern California, I now consider Suwanee, Georgia my home and wouldn't dream of moving back to the west! You just can't beat the quality of life, lakes and rivers and vacations up and down the east coast and Caribbean.

I graduated from Pepperdine University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcast journalism. And yes, I take a ribbing from co-workers about how much I could have really been studying given the school sits right above the beach in Malibu, CA.

Some of my favorite memories of doing this job for more than 17 years include riding out the eye of  Hurricane Ivan in Mobile, AL, going undercover with federal drug agents, covering one of the first U.S trials with ties to terrorism  and carrying the Olympic torch for the 1996 games.

Among the highlights in my personal life are my wonderful husband, my hero-mom, my friends and my two dogs.
