Reporter/producer, NewsChannel 21

I'm excited to join the NewsChannel 21 team, reporting on Central Oregon stories that matter to the people living on the High Desert during the week and weekends.

I'm a breaking news/social media junkie, and love connecting with viewers via Twitter and Facebook.

I graduated from California State University, Chico in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in journalism. I started working as an assignment editor/ multimedia journalist for KNVN, an NBC affiliate in Chico, for two years.

During that time, I covered stories involving the Greek suspension at Chico State, the California drought and the Orland bus crash, which killed 10 people after a Fed Ex truck slammed into the bus.

From there, I decided I wanted to move to Central Oregon to explore the beautiful state and learn about a different community.

Already, I've been amazed by the weather, natural beauty and the variety of locally grown vegetables.

In my spare time, I enjoy checking out the trails around Central Oregon, live music, and love food trucks.

If you have a favorite food truck and want to share it with me, feel free to send me a message.
