Get the top 5 daily headlines and breaking news from Seattle’s #1 morning news

I joined the Q13 Fox News team in April of 2018. This is my first time living or, even being on the West Coast and I’m excited at the opportunity to get to know the Seattle community.

I’m an award winning journalist, and I’m excited at the chance at telling your stories.

My time in the news industry has given me the chance to live in a few different places across the country. Before Seattle, I worked for WNCN in Raleigh, NC, I worked for WBTW in Myrtle Beach, SC, and my station was at WBOC in Salisbury, MD.

All of these places have been home for me, but my home will always be the Philadelphia area.

I graduated with honors from Susquehanna University in 2010. I also went to high school at Salesianum in Wilmington, DE.

I love music, and art. I love to draw, and play guitar. I love going to shows. I love the beach and the ocean, and surfing.
