COVID-19 in Washington: Links and resources to help you during coronavirus pandemic

As a Seattle Native, I’m thrilled to be back in the Northwest, working at Q13 FOX News. I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be a Sportscaster. That passion only grew while at the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, at Washington State University.

During college I interned for Root Sports and Sony while reporting for ESPNU Campus Connections. After graduating I headed to Idaho Falls, Idaho where I honed my skills as a Sports Anchor/Reporter.

I am a die hard Seahawks, Sounders and Mariners fan and proud to be covering the teams I grew up watching!

What keeps me going….
The love of the game and sharing that with Northwest Sports Fans.

I give back to my community by….
Mentoring students interested in careers in sports broadcasting. I’ve served as a guest lecturer in college and high school classrooms. I enjoy inspiring the next generation to find and pursue their passion.

My greatest TV moment….
Playing basketball with the Harlem Globetrotters… they even helped me slam dunk!

TV moment I would like to forget….
When the NFL Lockout ended, I was so overcome with joy I burst into song and dance “Are You Ready For Some Football” on live television…

If I had free time, I would….
Travel, anywhere and everywhere! Spend time with my family and friends, take a yoga class and participate in any activity that gets me moving and outdoors.
