Raised in Ft. Lauderdale/Miami, Florida, I am now happy to call Central Pennsylvania home! I am a Pennsylvania State University graduate and have worked as a publishing assistant, news reporter, writer and editor at various national magazines and newspapers in New York City.

After nearly 6 years of working in print journalism, I decided to make a change and switch careers to broadcasting. I was fortunate enough to land a job at FOX43-WPMT! In January 2017 I started in production and have worked my way up to weekend multi-media journalist.

When I am not covering news, you can find me spending time with my family and fur babies. I enjoy baking, running, traveling and going to the beach!
