I joined the KBAK team in March 2017 after working in the Midwest. I worked as the morning reporter covering breaking and current news events in Illinois, Iowa and Missouri.
Before that, I worked as an intern in the communications department at The White House. While working at The White House, I worked closely with the broadcast team, helping craft the message of the president to the American people. During my time working in the broadcast department, I met many seasoned reporters who offered mentorship and inspired me to continuing pursuing my dream of broadcast journalism.
A California native born and raised in the Bay Area and relocating to Los Angeles, it’s safe to say I've lived all over California. I worked as a news assistant at KABC in Los Angeles, where I fell in love with journalism and storytelling. During my time at KABC, I helped produce content for the hourly newscast, and worked on the assignment desk researching and fact checking information. I also worked for the Oprah Winfrey Network and KTLA Channel 5 News in Hollywood.
In my free time, I enjoy frequenting the gym, traveling, listening to music and spending time with friends and family. On my days off, I enjoy stopping by various businesses in the community and getting to know local residents.
