From the River Valley to the Northwest corner, I am beyond happy to call Fort Smith, AR my home. After moving to the area in the spring of 2012, I am completely in love with the city. I’m ecstatic to be covering news in both Arkansas and Oklahoma, and feel extremely lucky to be doing what I love everyday.

I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. I began my broadcasting career in college at the University of Missouri both reporting and anchoring for KOMU, Columbia’s NBC affiliate. I graduated with honors and with a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism. I also studied Spanish in college, becoming fluent in both writing and speaking the language. Even though I don’t live in Kansas City anymore, I'll forever be rooting for the Royals, Chiefs and Tigers – no matter what their current record may be.

I also spent a little over a year working with WDAF in Kansas City. During my time there, I covered several big stories. The most memorable was when I was on the ground, talking with people in Joplin, Mo., after one of the deadliest tornadoes ever recorded ripped through the city.

When I'm not telling stories, I'm sharing them on Facebook. Share a story with me on my page. I’m also constantly updating my viewers about my stories via Twitter.

I have a true passion for storytelling and believe that everyone has a story. I would love to hear yours. If you have an idea, share it with me anytime at
