I have two sisters and my dad always talks about how each one of us used to play with a Rubiks Cube. My older sister used to sit down with it for hours, turning and twisting the blocks to try and solve the puzzle. My younger sister used to sit down with it, give it about 90 seconds, throw it down and then walk away. I used to sit down, turn the blocks for a bit, and then realize there was another way to make it work. Id get some tools, carefully and safely take it apart, and then put it back together with all of the colors aligning. And thats my style in a nutshell. When something looks insurmountable, figure out a way to make it work for you!
Im currently a reporter for CBS 13 News. Ive covered everything from severe weather to court cases to the current presidential election. Before coming to Sacramento, I reported for KTHV 11 News, the CBS Affiliate in Little Rock, Arkansas. There, I covered national stories like the April 2014 tornadoes in Vilonia and Mayflower and Arkansas presidential campaign stops from Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Prior to that, I spent time as the Washington-based bureau reporter for Springfield, Missouri's KOLR 10.
I earned my Masters of Science in Broadcast and Digital Journalism at Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications in 2013 and my Bachelor of Arts in Communication at The George Washington University in 2009.
As a native of both South Florida and Southern California, I enjoy the sunshine, clear water, and the great outdoors. My travels have taken me everywhere from New York City to Barcelona to Marrakesh to Boston to Paris and beyond. Im fascinated by learning about foreign cultures and their histories. I can't wait to see the rest of the world!
