I am a Texan who is thrilled to call Seattle home! I joined the talented news team at Q13 FOX in July 2015.

I’ve been on tv airwaves through news, tv shows, and commercials since the age of 10. After falling in love with news, this crazy profession has taken me all across the country.

My last stop was at the ABC and FOX stations in Dayton, Ohio during the worst winter in 50 years. (After my fare share of -16 degree live shots, you can only imagine how happy I am to be in the PNW!)

I spent time in my hometown of Houston, TX at NBC affiliate KPRC. In addition to reporting the breaking news of the day, I kept viewer’s aware of the traffic conditions of Houston’s hectic roadways. Before Houston, I spent time at KLFY in Cajun Country! My time as a Morning Anchor and Reporter in Lafayette, LA was a whirlwind. I’ll never forget the life-changing experience of reporting during Hurricanes Ike and Gustav.

I am a proud alumni of the University of Miami and naturally a diehard Canes Fan. (But I can totally appreciate the success of Husky Nation.)

When I’m not on-air, I read as many books as possible, watch as many movies as possible, and buy as many shoes as possible. (Hello, Nordstrom.)

I’m pumped to learn everything there is know about the Emerald City. Please shoot me an email with suggestions of things to do and of course story ideas. See you soon!

    KENT, Wash. – The Kent Police Department is understaffed and hiring. When a city grows at the rapid rate that Kent has, the police department has to grow with it.

We have not been able to significantly increase the number of police officers in the city,” Kent Mayor Dana Ralph explained. Twenty years ago, there’d be as […]
