I remember the first time I walked into a news station. I was in 11th grade, and immediately upon walking in, the hairs on my neck stood so tall I thought they were touching the ceiling. Goosebumps covered my arms and ran all down my back, and I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

I experienced the same feeling the first time I set foot inside the KFOX studio. I found a newsroom full of people who were working hard on their stories, but were kind enough to smile and welcome me to their home. That same, special feeling goes for the first time I set foot in El Paso.

The Sun City showed me a sense of community, friendliness and beauty that I have not seen at any other point in my life. I am thrilled to begin this next chapter in the most welcoming city I have ever seen.

Coming from a small town in Northern Indiana, I am used to winters that begin on Halloween and end on Easter -- with 16 inches of snow overnight and temperatures of 25 degrees below zero all through the season. So, the Sun City is the perfect vacation spot that just happened to turn into my new home!

I have a long-lasting passion for television news that began with interviewing my little brothers on a home video camera when I was 8 years old. As a matter of fact, I was so excited to begin my career at KFOX14, that I accepted the position as the morning news reporter just one month after I graduated from Indiana University in May 2017!

I am dedicated to finding the hard-hitting stories for you to wake up to each morning. As you turn on your TV from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. I want to thank you for welcoming me into your living room to tell you what’s going on in El Paso.

I also want to invite you to reach out to me on social media. I’m an open book with a personality that is thirsting for new friends! Tell me your story. Everybody has one.
