Producer/Anchor/Reporter, NewsChannel 21

I'm so excited to be a part of the KTVZ NewsChannel 21 team! 

I have always loved being the center of attention, so naturally I chose a career in the broadcasting field.

Originally from a little suburb outside of Portland, my parents raised me both on stage and the sports field.

I decided to take a leap of faith and attend college to study sports broadcasting in the deep south. At The University of Alabama, I immersed myself in the "Roll Tide" culture and graduated in May of 2016 with a BA in Telecommunication and Film. 

During college, I interned for ESPNU, WVUA-TV and Comcast Sportsnet Northwest. I also co-hosted a radio show for the campus station. 

When I'm not in the newsroom, you'll find me camping, enjoying breweries around Bend, and cheering on the Crimson Tide. I cannot begin to express how excited I am to be back in the Pacific Northwest!

I love meeting new people! You can reach me any time, just follow my tweets, find me on Facebook or email me - all the links are next to my name on this page.
