Originally from Virginia, I spent the last three years as a reporter and weekend morning anchor at WVIR-TV, the NBC affiliate in Charlottesville, Virginia, which is also where I grew up. I graduated from American University in Washington, D.C. in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and political science. During my time at American, I also interned with the Washington Bureau for Cox Media Group, the parent company of WHIO-TV. When I’m not “on the job,” you’ll probably find me trying out a restaurant in town, or cheering on one of my beloved New England sports teams -- the Red Sox and Patriots. I’m looking forward to telling stories that matter to you. Please feel free to connect with me on Facebook, or Twitter, or shoot me an email, if you ever hear about something I should look into.

Pick a place where you’ll get to learn ‘hands-on.’ If you could only keep one 5-minute tape from your career what would be on it?
