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.
