Versatile journalist with 10 years of television experience. Areas of expertise include digital, marketing, producing and directing. Poised and confident with a strong speaking voice and talent for on-air news reporting and anchoring.
My childhood dream has always been to work in television. After early on discovering that I am a natural born storyteller, I made it my life-long purpose to turn my passion of storytelling into a career. Ever since elementary school, I have been editor-in-chief of my school newspaper or contributed to creating the school yearbook in some capacity. Writing is certainly a hobby of mine that I enjoy very much, but my real passion is going out into the field and reporting.
I graduated from Fordham University in the Spring of 2013. I earned my Bachelor's of Arts in Communications and Media Studies with the emphasis on Television Production & Radio Broadcasting. In 2015, I relocated from New York City to Memphis, TN in quest of an opportunity at a live news station to ultimately become a reporter and anchor.
I am currently a Mult-Media Specialist for the number one insurance company in the world: State Farm. Prior to this job, I was a Digital Content Manager at Your Phoenix CW in Phoenix, AZ and WVLA Local 33 in Baton Rouge, LA respectively.
I've also worked at WJTV 12 in Jackson, MS as a Promotions Producer and FOX 13 in Memphis, TN, where I gained experience as a Newscast Director.
Other prior television jobs include being a Production Assistant for NBC Universal’s “Maury” and “Trisha” shows respectively. Here, I began as an intern for the production team, and ended up being hired for post production in a freelance position upon graduation.
