After following TV jobs across the country, I am thrilled to call Seattle home. I’ve also worked at news stations in Minnesota, Utah, Indiana and Ohio.

I joined the Q13 Fox News team in 2011. You can catch me on the air co-anchoring Q13 Fox News at 4 and 5pm with Matt Lorch. I also co-anchor Q13 Fox News at 9 and 10pm with David Rose.

People ask me what I like about covering local news. My answer is simple. I enjoy being part of the community, and helping our viewers navigate through the days news. I take that responsibility very seriously.

I am also passionate about health issues. I recently joined the American Heart Association Board of the Puget Sound, and enjoy spreading the word about living a heart healthy life.

As a busy wife and mother of three, keeping my family healthy and safe is my number one priority. When I learn new ways to do that, I enjoy sharing that knowledge with our loyal viewers.

In my free time, I like to run. I’m also re-learning how to play the piano. Most of my off time, is spent with my family and friends, taking in all the the beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer.

If you have a story idea you’d like to share, or a health topic you want me to investigate, send a note my way.
