I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the outstanding WFLA team! I moved to Tampa from my hometown, Mobile, Alabama, and am excited to still be living along the beautiful Gulf Coast!

While in Mobile I served as Morning Show Anchor/General Assignment Reporter for WKRG-TV, the CBS affiliate which covers the Mobile/Biloxi/Pensacola markets. From hurricanes to sports, to breaking investigative stories and elections, I have covered so many interesting, emotional, important and fun stories.

Like most of us, I use social media and use it in my daily life to help deliver the fastest content possible for each story I am covering. Be sure to connect with me both on Twitter and Facebook!

I graduated from Auburn University (War Eagle!) where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Radio, Television, and Film with a concentration in Political Science.

Other than news, I love working for and helping out the community. One of my favorite organizations I am a part of here is the Junior League of Tampa Bay. We are able to touch so many lives in the Tampa Bay area with all that this organization does! I am always out and about trying to find a new restaurant to try, or just taking a walk around town with my dog, Belle. If you see me out, be sure to say, “Hi!”
