Week 12: Steelers at Seahawks (Live updates)
GAMEDAY: Seahawks vs Steelers, ‘We’re in the thick of things’

I am thrilled to be working at Q13 FOX News. Moving back to the amazing people and unrivaled beauty of the Pacific Northwest is a dream come true.

I grew up in Longview, Wash., and lived in the south Puget Sound for several years before beginning my broadcasting career in Reno, Nev., as a photojournalist. I then moved more than 2,000 miles away to Greensboro, N.C., where my nearly 10-year long stint in the deep south began.

After almost 7 years working as a photojournalist and reporter in Atlanta, I packed up my life and returned to my home state of Washington.

I live in Seattle with my partner and our awesome dog.

    Weekend flooding closes roads, damages crops

    CARNATION, Wash. – Stormy weather last weekend caused flooding that closed roads and washed out crops near Carnation and Fall City – and that’s likely just the beginning of what could be a very wet few months. Though a warmer, drier winter is expected throughout the Pacific Northwest, King County officials have warned that the risk of major flooding is high. If this weekend was just a warm-up, it could be an expensive winter. Carnation’s Jubilee Biodynamic Farm, for instance, is out […]
