I am overjoyed to be back in this wonderful town where I was born!

Ever since I was little, I have always loved listening to a good story. I am excited that now I get to be a professional storyteller on our morning show for the Dayton community.

I graduated from Kent State University in May 2017 and spent the past year working with over 15 universities across the country as a consultant. I lived out of two suitcases for almost a year while traveling, so I’m very excited to have a real home again!

In my free time, I love reading, cooking, performing in musical theater, spending time with family and friends, and hanging out with my sweet little kitten, Henrie. I also love to eat, so feel free to send me your favorite restaurant recommendations! My favorite local food right now is the sweet potato bread from Young’s Jersey Dairy.

I am thrilled to begin my news career in the Miami Valley and to meet more people in this wonderful community.
