Born and raised here in the Northwest, I’m also a proud Husky! My first job in broadcasting came as a UW sophomore when I was 19, reporting traffic for the afternoon show on KISS-FM. From there, I worked pretty much every radio shift imaginable, and was lucky enough to join The Bob Rivers Show, the morning radio show on KZOK at the time, working with some of the best in the biz.

I officially joined the Q13 FOX news team in August 2009, and my favorite thing about working here is being able to be a storyteller in the community I grew up in. I LOVE talking to people and doing interactive stories where I get to be myself and represent viewers by taking them inside the story itself.

Outside of work, you’ll find me pretending I’m a calm person in a hot yoga class; pretending I am an award-winning singer and rapper in a karaoke bar; or pretending I’m the courtesy police and demanding the ‘thank-you wave’ in traffic (let’s be kind during rush hour, people)!

My husband and I love traveling together, exploring new places here in the Northwest and all over. We also have a brown-and-white cat, Saffron, who seems to think my pillow is a special place for him to sleep at night. (Note to Saffy: It’s NOT. #pushover).

    Memories abound for 98 year-old former flight attendant who worked on Boeing’s first modern airliner!

    SEATTLE – This weekend, Boeing is celebrating at Seattle’s Museum of Flight to mark 100 years in business! One of the centerpieces is the Boeing 247;  a plane the museum has spent months restoring, and just brought to the grounds in the spring. “It’s regarded as… the first modern airliner,” Ted Huetter says. The PR rep with the Museum says it truly changed travel when it first emerged in the 1930’s. “You could fly across the country in something like 19 […]
