Originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, I bleed green and gold (after all, I am a Packers shareholder). That being said, there’s still a special spot in my heart for the Carolina blue.

I moved to Charlotte in December, 2017 as an anchor and investigative reporter, but broadcast has taken me all over the U.S..

It started at Hofstra University where I played collegiate DI golf and majored in Broadcast Journalism. Yes, I play from the white tees, and in the words of Ron Burgundy, “don’t act like you’re not impressed.” From Long Island, I moved to Corpus Christi, TX for a reporting job covering a variety of stories from immigration to the booming oil industry.

A sports anchor position drew me to Fort Myers, Florida (and obviously the sunshine) where I also co-hosted a widely popular golf segment called “The Golf Doctor.” I also performed freelance work for the PGA Tour.

Although sports were a big part of my life in Florida, I’ll never forget the buildup and aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Our wall-to-wall coverage helped people prepare for one of the worst storms to hit Florida in over a decade, eventually earning an Emmy nomination.

While the beach, year-long golf and a seemingly never-ending vacation was the dream life, I knew there was something missing: Autumn!

Thankfully, FOX 46 called! I’m so blessed to work with such a hard-working group of individuals, and so fortunate to call Charlotte my home. I’m passionate about protecting consumers, putting important stories on air and having a little bit of fun as well. I believe wholeheartedly in the philosophy “work hard, play hard,” so when I’m not at work, you can find me golfing or exploring everything the Queen City has to offer.

While in here in the Queen City, my work getting results for grieving families who were swindled out of gravestones they bought for their loved ones received recognition. Because of my stories, the salesman was arrested and charged. I was able to get some of the gravestones finally delivered to the people who were taken advantage of. My continuing coverage earned an Emmy nomination.
