I spent 10 years anchoring local news in Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina, and am so grateful to be doing it now in my home state of PA!

My favorite things:
My family, whom I’m extremely close to.  I’m an avid sports fan (I’m from Pittsburgh… and that’s all I will say about that!) and I get extremely competitive playing fantasy football. As a former figure skater, I love being on the ice. I am also a photographer who loves hot yoga, musical theater, playing softball, boating, going camping and running. (I ran my first half marathon in 2010!) That being said, I’m pretty happy sitting in my pajamas on the couch watching television.

I give back to my community by…
Volunteering as much as possible.  I’m on the Board of Directors for two incredible local non-profits.  Turning Point, a Women’s Counseling and Advocacy Center in York County and the York County Children’s Advocacy Center.   I’ve volunteered with Susan G. Komen for 11 years, as well as the American Cancer Society, Komen Young Professionals, and Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America. In April of 2014, I was chosen as the recipient of the PA Alzheimer’s Association Outstanding Media and Community Support Volunteer of the Year award.   What a blessing it is to be able to give back!

Something not everyone knows about me:
When I saw my husband for the first time, I was 13 years old. I turned to my girlfriend and said, “I’m going to marry him someday.” He’s a Broadway Actor and the most wonderful person I know.

I’m known around the newsroom for…
Wearing large ridiculous curlers in my hair.

What keeps me going:
Hot Yoga, coffee and my daughter Addison.

My favorite TV memory:
I had the opportunity to interview Kim Peek, the megasavant whom the movie Rain Man was based on. He couldn’t complete a simple task like shaking your hand, but he could accurately recall the contents of at least 12,000 books. His story had always fascinated me, so meeting him in person was unreal.

TV moment I’d like to forget
The time I fell off a box I was standing on, live on the air. My brother–in-law was kind enough to post it on youtube.

If I had free time, I would…
Own a horse and learn how to cook. (my poor husband!)
