Outside of work I love spending time with my two rescue cats and traveling. You can find me eating my way through Knoxville… sushi and tacos are my weakness! I also enjoy being outdoors. Sign me up for a hike or kayaking and if I find a vineyard along the way… bonus! I can’t wait to soak in all East Tennessee has to offer. 

What I Enjoy About Local News:

I love connecting with everyone and having the opportunity to highlight the stories of some incredible people. I also believe local news plays a very important role in keeping us informed and building community!
