News Reporter

Charlotte, NC

I absolutely love my job. I'm a news reporter through and through. So far, the best part has been seeing and experiencing life in different parts of the country. I've worked in New England - Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Maine - and I miss the ocean. If you ever get a chance, definitely visit Cape Cod in MA, and Bar Harbor in Maine.

I was in the Minneapolis/St Paul market and covered news in the Upper Midwest. (Can you say freezing cold winters) Now, it's North Carolina. I joined WBTV in July 2012 and I'm so excited to learn about the region.

Covering news is like being in a classroom everyday. I get a front row seat to life and current events. Reporting is such a humbling job. Strangers share their stories and lives with me, and I love to tell the stories.

If you have a news story, let's talk.

I've had a range of assignments. From heartbreaking scenes at homicides and murder trials to the exhilarating moments of sports championship celebrations. I had the privilege of covering the fans' celebrations in Boston after the Red Sox won the World Series, when the Patriots brought home the Super Bowl, and when the Celtics paraded through the streets of Boston after winning the Championship. As a sports fan - there's nothing better.
