Hey y’all! I’m a Texas girl, through and through. I grew up in a small town about twenty minutes East of Dallas called Heath, TX.

Hey y’all! I’m a Texas girl, through and through. I grew up in a small town about twenty minutes East of Dallas called Heath, it sits right on Lake Ray Hubbard. I remember the exciting day during my sophomore year of high school when we got our first traffic light. I graduated from Rockwall Heath High School in three years.

In high school I enjoyed cheerleading and dance. I also found my passion for getting in front of the camera when I signed with my first modeling agency at the age of 15.

After high school I packed my bags for West Texas and attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock for three semesters. It was here that I pledged the sorority Zeta Tau Alpha and fell in love with college football. On most Saturdays during football season you can find me at home throwing tortillas at the TV (it’s a red raider thing). I transferred to Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX, which is where I graduated with a double major in journalism and fashion media and a minor in business. SMU is where I found my passion for being a journalist and hearing and learning people’s stories. I forever thank the wonderful staff in the journalism school at SMU for making the newsroom so easy to fall in love with.

I am the weekday education reporter and weekend anchor/producer here at KFYR-TV.

This is my first job out of college and I am so excited to begin my career in North Dakota! I have met so many wonderful people in my time here already. Plus, I’m surviving my first real winter so far, something we don’t have in the South. If you ever have a story idea my email is - please don’t hesitate to reach out!
