Born and raised here in the Northwest, I’m also a proud Husky! My first job in broadcasting came as a UW sophomore when I was 19, reporting traffic for the afternoon show on KISS-FM. From there, I worked pretty much every radio shift imaginable, and was lucky enough to join The Bob Rivers Show, the morning radio show on KZOK at the time, working with some of the best in the biz.

I officially joined the Q13 FOX news team in August 2009, and my favorite thing about working here is being able to be a storyteller in the community I grew up in. I LOVE talking to people and doing interactive stories where I get to be myself and represent viewers by taking them inside the story itself.

Outside of work, you’ll find me pretending I’m a calm person in a hot yoga class; pretending I am an award-winning singer and rapper in a karaoke bar; or pretending I’m the courtesy police and demanding the ‘thank-you wave’ in traffic (let’s be kind during rush hour, people)!

My husband and I love traveling together, exploring new places here in the Northwest and all over. We also have a brown-and-white cat, Saffron, who seems to think my pillow is a special place for him to sleep at night. (Note to Saffy: It’s NOT. #pushover).

    SEATTLE — On the surface, it may sound like an unusual pairing:  A local children’s medical clinic, partnering with a local artist. And not for waiting room decor- but rather for therapy. We stopped by the very first session of this so-called “L.A.U.G.H” workshop for kids with the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic to see what it’s all about; and the hope is that this stress-relieving activity just might serve as preventive medicine for kids as they grow up. The workshop […]

  • Kaci Aitchison: When building your family isn’t so easy

    This is an announcement I never thought I’d be lucky enough to make: I am pregnant, and my husband John and I are thrilled to announce we are expecting a baby girl this fall! I debated ending that sentence with an exclamation point — because of course it’s exciting enough to warrant one, but the truth is after everything we have been through to get here, it’s not that simple. We both decided early on that if we were lucky enough […]

  • This tandem cycling class is helping people with Parkinson’s disease

  • How candles are helping the Seattle Sounders bring soccer to underserved kids

    SEATTLE – You may not think candles and soccer have much in common; but a partnership between the two- or, more specifically, between candle votives and soccer- is helping kids in underserved communities have access to soccer and the positive community aspects soccer can bring. It all started a few years ago, when the idea for the RAVE Foundation was born. Founded in 2013, the plans truly began taking shape last summer to bring soccer into urban areas to empower and inspire […]

We went to Sherri Thompson, the director of the Sea Gals, to find out exactly what it is she looks for, and why a team […]
