As a Lancaster County native, I am excited to be back doing what I love in the community I’ve always called home. Before returning to Central Pennsylvania, I spent several months reporting in Bozeman, Montana and most recently came from Columbia, South Carolina. During my time in “Famously Hot” Columbia, I covered many memorable stories including the Charleston Church Massacre, the Confederate Flag removal and the historic October floods that washed out much of the state.

I’ve had a passion for story-telling since I can remember. When I was a little girl, I spent most of my mornings before school watching the Today Show with my mom and quickly realized that is what I wanted to do when I grew up.

A proud alumni of Clemson University, I am an avid Clemson football fan (Go Tigers!) and you will often see me wearing orange and purple the day before a game. After graduating from Clemson, I decided to trade in the warmth of the south for cold New York winters and continued my education at Syracuse University where I earned my Masters in Broadcast and Digital Journalism.

In my spare time, I love running, cooking and spending quality time with friends and family.
