Weathercaster/reporter/producer, NewsChannel 21

I am so excited to be starting off my career in the beautiful city of Bend! I started working for NewsChannel 21 in June of 2016. I was born and raised in the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio area. I went to school at Northern Kentucky University, where I graduated with a double major in Broadcasting and Journalism.

While at NKU, I wrote for their newspaper, The Northerner, had a radio show on Norse Code Radio, and was the main anchor and producer for the news show, The World Report. I also interned at FOX19 in Cincinnati, where I was hired on as a Production Assistant for the past year.

After coming to Bend, I fell in love with weathercasting. I'm continuing my dream of becoming a meteorologist by going back to school online through Mississippi State University. I am set to be a meteorologist by 2020.

A little bit about me: My favorite hobby is to travel. I have been to London, Venice, Paris, and Munich, and plan on many more worldly adventures in the years to come.

When I’m not at work, I am most likely spending time with my fluffball of a dog, Delilah -- she’s a Miniature Australian Shepherd -- or I am visiting my family in Eugene.
