I joined the KFOX14 Team in May 2012. I love living in El Paso and telling stories from the heart of the borderland.
While in El Paso, I've enjoyed covering city and county politics, President Obama's visit, ASARCO and City Hall demolitions, Triple-A baseball and the opening of the El Paso Chihuahua's stadium.
Two of my stories received 2013 EMMA "Honorable Mention" awards. One for "One Basket: The Mitchell Marcus Story," and a special investigative piece on "Marriage for Hire" which exposed the amount of money wasted on sham marriages in the military.
My coverage of the ongoing water problems in Vinton helped change Texas State Law.
Investigative reporting is my passion. It's my job to hold the powerful accountable, expose wrongdoing and give a voice to the voiceless. KFOX14 Investigates aims to go further for you, dig deeper for the truth and shine a brighter light on problems in our community. Someone once called me 'relentless' and that's one label I'm ok with! Helping people and making a difference fuels me.
More about me:
I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and I am a Cheesehead through and through!
I graduated Cum Laude from the University of Missouri with a degree in broadcast journalism. GO TIGERS! In college, I worked as a reporter/anchor/ multi-media journalist for KOMU-TV the NBC affiliate in Columbia, Missouri. One of the most memorable stories I covered was the Joplin tornado in 2011. I was the first reporter from my station to arrive in Joplin, just moments after the devastating tornado ripped through the city and I stayed on the story for 37 hours.
I've learned a lot about storytelling and reporting from my Godfather, Mark Curtis. I interned with him at ABC-6 in Providence, Rhode Island.
My love of sports lead me to journalism. I would beg my parents to let me stay up late so I could watch post-game interviews. I've always wanted to know the story behind the story!
I am passionate about news and feel very fortunate to be living my dream. The news is about YOU and I want to tell your stories. Feel free to contact me via email or follow me on twitter and Facebook! I'd love to hear from you!
