WRAL reporter

Professional Experience:

I come from WISC, the CBS affiliate in Madison, Wisconsin where I served as an anchor and breaking news/investigative reporter.

Awards & Recognition:

Wisconsin Broadcasting Association’s Best Investigative Reporting and Best Continuing Coverage awards. Chicago/Midwest Chapter Emmy Award Winner.

News Philosophy:

Getting accurate information to the public matters. Informing people with unbiased information about their community, their government, etc. gives them the tools to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.


I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with degrees in History and Journalism. Go Badgers!


I’m from the Chicago suburbs. If you know of a place around here where I can get a good Italian Beef please reach out!

Hobbies, Interests & Community Involvement:

I love interior decorating, being outside – whether that means hiking or boating – and spending as much time with my friends and family as I can. I also make a point of mentoring young journalists. It always excites me to see young people who want to make a difference through reporting.


I have a younger sister, Megan; My parents, Dave and Tina; And a very cute rescue dog named Mike.

Likes Best About North Carolina:

The people! Everyone is so friendly and always up for a conversation. The natural beauty of this state is a very close second.

Most Memorable Assignments:

Covering the 2016 presidential election in the capital city of Wisconsin, a swing state, was very memorable.
