Hi ya'll! I've been working at Eyewitness News since September 2010. First off, I'm a West Virginia girl, born and raised and cherish the fact that I get to report the news in my hometown of Charleston. I'm a graduate of George Washington High School, and earned my bachelor's degree at WVU, majoring in Broadcast News. I graduated magnua cum laude in August 2008, and quickly got my foot in the door at WDTV in Bridgeport, WV.
At WDTV, I worked as a one-man-band reporter for a little more than two years. I consider Clarksburg my second home and had the opportunity to meet and work with some of the best people in the business. It was there I was able to learn and grow as a reporter and understand what is important to you, the viewer. From one West Virginian to another, I care about what's going on in YOUR backyard.
In those two years, I reported many memorable stories, including being the only reporter from the Clarksburg market to cover the UBB Mine Disaster. For a week, the satellite engineer and I lived out of the news car, and I saw first hand the grace and compassion that comes from my home state. I was privileged to be able to tell their stories.
Since joining the Eyewitness News team, I've been honored several times for my work. In 2012, I took home a WVBA award for "Best Hard News Story" for a story about elder abuse. The Associated Press named me "Best
Reporter" that same year. I also won an award for an investigative story on a serial arsonist. "Fugitive Files" was also named "Best Public Service Program," by the Associated Press in 2012, and that's something I'm extremely proud of. My biggest accomplishment here at Eyewitness News is working with you, and helping rid your streets of criminals. The Fugitive Files has helped local law enforcement nab more than 400 fugitives! Keep those tips coming!
I love spending time with my family and friends, going to concerts (especially Tom Petty) and exploring the Mountain State.
