My alarm goes off at 2 a.m. every morning but I’ll admit it, I press snooze a few times before getting out of bed! I joined Fox17 in March 2013 as a general assignment reporter and made the switch to mornings in September 2014.

Before joining Fox17, I worked as a reporter in Lansing at WLNS-TV. A graduate of Central Michigan University and native of Detroit, the mitten has always been home. Growing up I always said I wanted to leave Michigan, but when the time came I realized how much I loved it and once I found West Michigan there was no leaving. I am always up to try a new adventure and this area has so much to offer!

As for the job, it has taught me a great deal over the years and really made me realize that everyone truly has their own unique story. But it’s when you actually take the time to listen you learn the most about others and yourself.
