Although you might see me report occasionally on the later news, I mostly spend my workday gathering lifestyle pieces about interesting people and happenings right here in the Ozarks.
I was born and raised in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and I am a proud Gator from the University of Florida. I graduated in May of 2011 with a Bachelors of Science in Telecommunication, and I was an anchor and reporter for their television station, WUFT.
My journey from the Sunshine State to the Show-Me-State was a bit of an adventure. I applied for this job without ever setting foot in Springfield, but my instincts as a journalist paid off!
KOLR10/KOZL seemed like a place where I could learn and grow as someone just entering the business. This seemed like an excellent first job.
I interned at the Home Shopping Network in St. Petersburg, Florida, I worked at a summer camp in the Poconos teaching campers broadcasting, and I edited and produced the end of the year video for the camp.
In my spare time I like to exercise, travel, hang out with family and friends, and go to the beach.
I love that my work is different every day, I love constantly meeting new people, and there's nothing better than seeing the reaction of viewers after I've worked hard on a story.
