School Closings & Delays

Hi everyone! I’m the weekend anchor at FOX43. You can tune in to watch the news with me every Saturday & Sunday night at 10. If you do, you’ll be watching a local lady with nearly 20-years of experience!

I grew up in Biglerville, PA, in Adams County. I graduated from Biglerville High School, then attended York College. I graduated with a degree in Mass Communications.

In 1998, I joined the FOX43 family as an assignment editor. That position helped prepare me to be a reporter in our Harrisburg Bureau. From there I moved into the main newsroom in York and then, after several years, I became the weekend anchor.

As a reporter, I’ve covered happy stories, heartbreaking ones too, and everything in between. I was in Lancaster County for the Amish School shootings, Harrisburg for the hit & run trial of former State Rep. Tom Druce, and in Washington, D.C. for the Inauguration of President Obama. I’ve traveled from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh to State College to gather information for you, and I’ve loved every minute of it!

As the weekend anchor, it’s my job to make sure the entire newscast is complete and correct for you. I check and double check every story before sitting down at the anchor desk.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I’m blessed to have a happy and very active six year old son and a two year old daughter. They keep me and my husband busy! I also enjoy running and teaching fitness classes at my gym.
