Having lived in Colorado Springs most of my life, I am elated to serve the town I love so much! Genuinely, there is no place like home.

I joined the KRDO NewsChannel 13 news team in August 2015 as a multimedia journalist. My 6-year news career has taken me across the nation, including working for the NBC affiliate in Wichita, KS, and the ABC affiliate in Cincinnati, OH. In this time, I've reported, anchored, and worked behind the scenes as a producer. I have also won several storytelling awards, including from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters, for my feature and weather coverage. All of this has helped solidify my passion for this ever-changing industry and desire to tell stories that matter. For me, the biggest reward of being a journalist is the people I get to meet every single day.

I am a proud graduate of the University of Northern Colorado, where I earned a double major in Communication Studies and Speech Communication, minoring in English.

When I'm not at the station, I am normally outside looking for the next adventure, trying to perfect a new recipe, or reading some sort of suspense novel. My family, friends, and faith are also extremely important to me! I look forward to getting to know this community even better!
