Hey! Thanks for clicking on my page to learn more about me!
I am a native Floridian, born and raised in Tampa. I could not be happier to be back in the Sunshine State!
After high school, I went to the University of Tampa on a soccer scholarship and was a member of the 2007 National Championship team.
But I was ready for a new adventure, so I packed everything up and transferred to Emory University in Atlanta (where I saw snow for the first time, how embarrassing).
At Emory, I played on the women's soccer team and was a founding member of the student-run news show Emory News Now. I made it home during the summers to intern at WFLA and WTSP in Tampa.
After graduating, I landed my first job as a multimedia reporter at WLTZ NBC 38 in Columbus, Georgia. I spent two years there covering any and all types of news, from breaking news, to Fort Benning, to the opening of the world's longest urban whitewater course, to bullying in the schools.
Now let's get personal. I am a self-proclaimed gym rat and love being active. I am also a huge movie and book buff, and when I am not working you can find me out playing with my two rescue dogs, Penny and Kenai.
I am so excited to be part of this community! If you have a story idea or problem you need help with, don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
