I grew up on the Alabama and Georgia border, and I can say proudly that I received the best of both states.

When I was young, my grandma would always make me watch the news with her which influenced how highly I thought of journalism. To me, the news is an essential part of our life that allows us to relate to others and think critically about the world we share.

I went to college at Troy University for Multimedia Journalism and graduated in 2023.

While there, I worked in print journalism for the newspaper, but the classes covered almost every field.

I am excited for the opportunity to be able to serve the people of Eastern Kentucky. Feel free to reach out to me with story ideas any time by email at
