I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma but raised in McKinney, Texas, about 20 miles north of Dallas.
Prior to my time as 10 News Traffic Anchor, I hosted "Studio 10," an
entertainment program at WTSP. I also worked as Sports Director and
main Sports Anchor at The Villages News Network outside Ocala, Florida
for three years and spent time producing morning news at Texas Cable
News in Dallas.
While with The Villages News Network, I was honored to win an Associated
Press Award for Community Affairs reporting. I also enjoy membership
in one of the nation's premiere entertainment criticism organizations,
the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
When I'm not at work, I love spending time with my husband Matt and our two mischievous cats. I love to run, write, sew and play piano.
I love the small town feel of Tampa Bay. I love being able to walk into
almost any business in the area and see a familiar, friendly face. The
gorgeous views from our beaches and waterfront communities don't hurt
either. This is a community like no other, and I am proud to call it
