Connect With Me


I was born and raised in Florence, South Carolina, where eating biscuits comes with gravy and drinking ice tea is the norm. Moving from a state that is well known for its hot weather conditions to a state that is one of the coldest to live in has been quite the transition for me. Nonetheless, I am happy to begin my career in the state that is often referred to as The Peace Garden State and meet new people in the Boomtown.

Watching the news played a significant role in my household. My parents taught me the importance of knowing what is going on, not only in my local community, but in the world I live in. As a child, I looked forward to watching the evening news with my family because, in my eyes, it was a bonding mechanism. Even though the memories were precious to me, I did not know at the time it would be a career that I would pursue.

As a way of learning more about the field of journalism, I was an editor for my high school's yearbook committee and a reporter for the broadcast club. In 2014, I graduated from Clark Atlanta University where I majored in Mass Media Arts, with a concentration in television. While in college, I had the privilege of interning at WAGA FOX 5 news and landing a summer internship at WTTG Fox 5 DC. I am also a member of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ).

In my spare time, you can find me practicing yoga or enjoying the great outdoors. My favorite types of food are seafood and Italian, so if you know any good eateries in the area, let me know. I am open to hearing any stories that you may have. If you would like to share your ideas, feel free to contact me via email at:
