Outside Interests/Hobbies:

I love to travel! Whenever I have the chance, I love to explore new cities and new areas around me that I have never seen before. I’m also a big animal lover. My Mini Pincher/Chihuahua mix dog named Pee Wee is always by my side when I’m not working. I also love cooking and enjoy trying to make new recipes — though I’ll never quite add up to my mom’s delicious Italian cooking!

What You Enjoy About Local News:

The best part of this job is that every day is different from the last. No two stories are the same and everyone has their own unique story to tell. I learn something new every day on the job. It’s also a great honor to get to write the first draft of history as a reporter.
