I was born and raised in Central PA and graduated from Susquehannock High School in 1999 and from York College in 2004 with a degree in Mass Communications and a minor in Music Industry.

During college, I was very involved with our radio station – WVYC. I interned at Cumulus Media in Harrisburg in the Promotions Department my senior year. After graduation, I got a job at XM Satellite Radio and moved to Washington, DC where I lived for about 7 years.

In 2011, I moved back to York to be closer to my family while expecting my first child. She is the love of my life.

I started working for FOX43 in September, 2012 as part of the studio crew for the evening news and was promoted to a Producer as of September, 2013. I love working in the newsroom and I have always loved writing. I’m really grateful to be making a living doing something I love.

Music has always been a big passion of mine. I started playing guitar when I was 14 and I’ve played in a number of bands over the years. I like art, going to concerts, watching movies, playing disc golf, and hanging out with my little girl.
