As a Michigan native I could not be happier, or warmer, in Orlando!

I first started telling stories at Elon University's student run news program Phoenix14News. In the summer of 2008 I took off for New York City to intern at The Early Show. The following summer I returned to CBS to intern for the senior producer of 60 Minutes were I helped produce the Michael Vick story.

Two weeks after graduating college I was on the air in Lubbock, Texas at the local ABC affiliate, KAMC 28 News. The town was small but the stories were big. In my one year in Texas I covered a flood, wildfires, a plane crash, the search for missing 13-year old Hailey Dunn, an oil spill in the Brazos river and the arrest of Lubbock terror suspect Khalid Aldawsari. I was also the only local reporter to interview former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales after his grand jury charges were dropped.

In the Spring of 2011 I started working for Channel Nine.  You can see my stories on Eyewitness News at 5 p.m., 5:30 p.m., and 6 p.m.
