I am originally from Southern California where it's summer almost all year round. Now I'm 24 hours away from home, ready to embrace seasons...even if the winter dips to negative temperatures I've never felt before! Although I've always had a love for journalism, my road to get here wasn't a direct one.

I graduated from Cal State University, Fullerton with a BA in Communications and a Minor in Radio-TV-Film. After graduation, I began my career in public relations working for a boutique agency that represents retail and lifestyle brands. Not sure if that was the right path for me, I hopped on a ship that sailed around the Hawaiian Islands. I worked on the Pride of America cruise ship for a year, exploring everything the islands have to offer. While aboard, I realized the mainland was calling and it was time for me to start a career in broadcast.

For the past two years, I worked at ABC7 in Los Angeles as a production assistant and morning traffic producer. Always up for an adventure, I packed my bags and headed to the Midwest to pursue my dream as an on-air broadcaster. I couldn't be more excited to join the KFYR-TV news team and begin this new journey. What interests me the most about news is sharing people's stories and how every day is different. I am looking forward to meeting new people and exploring everything the Peace Garden State has to offer (weather permitting of course).

If you have any story ideas send them my way, I'd love to hear from you!
