Writing the very latest news and information that’s important to readers and viewers is big responsibility and something I take very seriously.

My writing for Q13 FOX News comes from my love of the Pacific Northwest as a native of the area, but also from my concern for local issues that impact myself and my own loved ones, including my 12-year-old daughter and six-year-old son, both students in Seattle-area schools.

While my presence in the Q13 Fox newsroom may be subtle and reserved, it’s also effective and productive. I do what I can every day to report accurately, responsibly and thoroughly, the stories that shape each day and affect us all.

Sometimes that means doing what I can to process breaking news quickly, compiling video, writing scripts, coordinating with editors, graphics staff, our assignment desk, and newscast producers in the production of stories both on our website and in our broadcasts.

It’s a big task, but a great job and a lot of fun. It’s also something I believe adds a tremendous value to our community.
