I am extremely excited to call Central Florida home. I joined the Eyewitness News team in June 2016 and anchor the weekend evening newscasts at 10 p.m. on WRDQ and at 6 and 11 p.m. on Channel 9.

I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD where I graduated from Towson University. Go Tigers!

My first on-air job was in Albany, GA at WALB-TV where I spent five years and anchored weekend evenings. I'm also no stranger to Florida. I lived just up the road in Jacksonville for two years where I reported and anchored for First Coast News.

Prior to WFTV, I was one of the morning faces for WIS News Ten Sunrise in Columbia, SC. While at WIS, I was honored to receive the 2015 Anchor of the Year Award from the South Carolina Broadcasters Association. I, along with the Sunrise team, also received an Emmy Award for Best Morning Newscast.

Some of the toughest stories to cover in my career were in South Carolina. I was on the desk to anchor through two tragic moments that made national news-- the deadly attack on 9 church members in Charleston and the historic floods that devastated the state in October 2015.

Now that I'm in Florida again, I look forward to exploring all of the beautiful places that Orlando and the rest of the state have to offer.

I love hearing from you! Feel free to drop me a line just to say hello or offer story ideas.
