During my time at Asbury, I developed a passion for storytelling. It is that passion that led me to Hazard and WYMT.
I am originally from Naperville, Illinois, but my home has always been Kentucky. I have lived in the Bluegrass State for 13 years now, and I hope to stay here always.
American Sign Language is my first language. I was raised and homeschooled by Deaf parents and I would not trade that experience for anything. (And yes, I hear just fine.) After graduating high school in 2013, I studied Media Communications and Creative Writing at Asbury University.
During my time at Asbury, I developed a passion for storytelling. It is that passion that led me to Hazard and WYMT. I feel so blessed to be here, and can't wait to serve the people of Hazard. I love working at WYMT, and hope to be here a long time.
I recently married my best friend, Luke Cooney, in November. (It still doesn't feel real!) I love cats and superheroes, and when I'm not at work you can find me curled up with a good book or binge watching Stranger Things.
