Previous Media Experience:

WPSD-TV, Paducah, KY (Reporter)

Outside Interests/Hobbies:

I enjoy traveling, particularly to places where there is sand, an ocean and a warm climate! In my free time, I’m usually reading something, watching a documentary of some kind, or driving to some unsung destination where there is good food and interesting people.

What You Enjoy About Local News:

We shop at the same grocery stores. We drive the same commute to work. We wake up to the same beautiful landscapes of East Tennessee. As a local journalist, I have a responsibility to my peers, friends and neighbors to find the story and get it right. Every day, I remind myself to find out what matters most to them. After all, the news we report impacts our lives, too.
