I am incredibly excited to begin my journalism career here at KTVO!

I am from Westmoreland City, a suburb about 20 miles east of Pittsburgh. I graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies with a specialization in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Music. While in college, I interned at WJET-TV an ABC/FOX affiliate in Erie, Pennsylvania. While there, I had the opportunity to interview former Miss Pennsylvania Jordyn Colao and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Bob Woodward. While in college, I was also a member of the Spirit of the Scots Marching Band (Clarinet section), the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Clarinet Choir, and a sister of Sigma Alpha Iota.

In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, reading, playing with my sheltie dog Laddie and traveling. I spent two summers studying Intercultural Communications and Music in Edinburgh, Scotland while in college.
