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 reporter 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 part-time to get my foot in the door, learned the ropes of TV reporting on the side, helped out everywhere in between and worked my way up to Reporter/ Multimedia Journalist one year later.

When I am not covering news, you can find me spending time with my family, running, traveling and going anywhere with a beach when I am able! I am an animal lover and have a rescue cat & dog, who I refer to as my ‘fur babies’…cant image my life without them!
