Connect With Me

Although I was born and raised in beautiful North Carolina, I am so thrilled that my passion has brought me to eastern Kentucky. I cannot wait to tell your story!

I always say I did not choose journalism, journalism chose me. I got bit by the bug my freshman year of college, started writing for the school paper as a sports reporter, interviewed a New York Yankees baseball player and, from there, the rest is history.

I attended college at Appalachian State University in the beautiful Boone, NC where I fell in love with the mountains, and of course, journalism. Growing up, I never anticipated a career in news. It wasn’t until freshman year of college when my public speaking professor asked me what my dream job would be. I answer with “reporting”. I knew my life was going to be different when he said, “that’s not a dream. You can make that happen.” I have been inspired and determined ever since. I went to school for journalism, but gained all my outside experience in broadcasting. I created, essentially, my own broadcast journalism degree. I worked hard-taking every opportunity that came across my lap. This led me to an amazing internship with our schools IMG Sports Network and eventually FOX Charlotte as well as an internship with a fortune 200 company working as a videographer. The experience I had at FOX and the contacts I made were invaluable. To this day I have to pinch myself. I cannot believe I have been this blessed to have so many great opportunities and meet so many great people.

When I am not working, I love hiking, running, reading outside and watching old black and white movies. I enjoy being around my wonderful family and friends. I just love being around people.
