My husband and I have been long-time high school sweethearts and we have two young boys. I was born in Oregon, but we've lived all over the world. We continue to come back to the Pacific Northwest, as we love all it has to offer, from the coast to the mountains. In the summer, you will find us kayaking, camping and gardening. In the winter, we love to hit the slopes, and you will often find me with a latte and a sewing machine.
Before working in journalism, I started and ran a wedding and event planning company for 10 years. I became interested in writing and telling stories when I became a regular guest on a morning news show for wedding trends and planning. I then went back to school for broadcast journalism which, led me to KTVZ.
My passion for journalism comes from my love of getting out into the community, meeting people and hearing their stories, then finding the best and most accurate way to share it with the community.
