News/Sports Reporter, WYMT
Hazard, Ky.

I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio where I had my first encounter with broadcasting during my sophomore year of high school.

I was a play-by-play and color commentator for my school and immediately fell in love with the field.

That love led me to Ohio University where I joined WOUB Public Media, where I was an active member of a student-run news program.

I started as a sports reporter/anchor, covering both Ohio University athletics and high school sports. I also filled leadership positions for our 30-minute high school football and basketball programs, serving as a senior reporter for Gridiron Glory and a host for Hardwood Heroes.

In my last two years of college, I started getting involved in sharing stories outside the sports world. I graduated from OU in May 2023.

Covering high school sports holds a special place in my heart and I look forward to bringing that passion to Eastern Kentucky. I also look forward to meeting you and helping share your stories.
