About ME

 

I’ve worn many hats during my broadcasting career. From associate producer to reporter to anchor — it’s been a long ride and I still love my job.

I began my career at the Fox station in Birmingham, and moved on to the ABC station in the same city, where I worked for 5 years as a producer.
My career as a reporter was also born there. My mentor gave me my first shot on air during Hurricane Ivan reporting on road closures.


The next year, I was hired as a full time reporter in Montgomery. The years that followed moved quickly. I’ve worked as an anchor and reporter in the Mobile, Charlotte, and Savannah markets. I also take pride in training/mentoring new journalists.
