I came to Seattle in the fall of 2011 after working at stations in Ohio, Indiana, Utah and Minnesota. The Pacific Northwest quickly won me over with its beauty and the smart, passionate people who live here. You can catch me each day, anchoring Q13 Fox News at 4, 5, 9 and 10 p.m.

One of the best things about working in TV news is that every day is different. We get to meet so many interesting people, tell their stories, go to amazing places and learn about what’s happening in our community and the world. TV is immediate and live newscasts offer an energy other platforms can’t — I knew right away, this is a job I would love. And I have always said, if you’re bored, you’re not asking enough questions.

I’m known around the newsroom for…

I had to ask people in the newsroom about this, and here’s what I got: In touch, positive, punctual and wears interesting necklaces. I was also told that beneath my polite and unassuming demeanor, I am one tough interviewer.

What keeps me going…

Being part of a team and knowing the community relies on us for important information.

I give back to my community by…

Spreading the word about living a heart healthy life. Over the years, I have spent a lot of time helping the American Heart Association raise money and awareness about our nation’s No. 1 killer, heart disease.

My greatest TV moment…

An eye-opening series on 911 dispatch protocol after a botched emergency call in Utah. The man who called 911 died after emergency crews couldn’t locate him because he called from a cell phone. Our series of stories led to changes in the local emergency system and helped his family heal.

TV moment I’d like to forget…. Anytime I get the giggles during a live newscast. It’s tough to shake. That might be a boring story, but I’m not going to tell you what I’d really like to forget.

If I had free time, I would…

Learn some new languages, write for fun, travel and hang out with my family.
