When I’m not at work you can find me spending time with my husband, Josh, and my two mixed-breed rescues, Chopstick and Saki.
I like to check out anything local—restaurants, stores, coffee shops. I’m a coffee addict!
I also like to travel as much as I can. Nothing like a good vacation!
What You Enjoy About Local News:
I love being able to tell stories of people in our community. I believe journalists are the voice of the people, so working at WATE and having the chance to be On Your Side is exactly what I love about this business. I believe there is real opportunity to help people and make East Tennessee an even better place to live.
