I grew up in sunny California and have now decided to make the Midwest my home. I received my degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of California, in Los Angeles.
I began my career with the CBS affiliate in Tucson, Arizona as an assignment editor, then it was on to the sunflower state. For the last three years I have covered the four states for the CBS affiliate in Pittsburg, Kansas.
People ask me which I would take - an earthquake or a tornado. I say earthquake any day. The weather out here is so different, but I have been able to cover some amazing stories from flooding and ice storms to tornadoes.
Reporting is my passion! I love to meet new people and tell a good story. I am very excited to be joining the OzarksFirst team and look forward to bringing you the news that matters.Survey
