I joined the NewsChannel 21 team in May 2015 as the assignment editor and the producer for the 5 o’clock evening news and later moved into the role of 6 p.m. show producer.
I am a fifth-generation Californian, born and raised in San Jose. I moved to the Pacific Northwest to attend the University of Washington in Seattle, where I earned my bachelor's degree in Political Communications and a minor in Law, Societies and Justice.
During my college years, I interned for CBS Radio in San Francisco, where I discovered my passion for broadcast media. I was also a social media intern at the University of Washington Athletic Department (go Huskies!). I studied journalism in Dublin, Ireland during my junior year as well.
I remained in Seattle for a year after college, working for both the NBC affiliate KING 5 News and CBS Radio.
In my spare time, I love to travel, as studying abroad in college fueled my passion for traveling, meeting new people and experiencing other cultures. I also love to read and snow ski, I’m looking forward to hitting the slopes of Mt. Bachelor this winter!
I am so thrilled to be here in beautiful Bend, doing what I love and meeting so many wonderful new people.
