I am a Texas girl who is very excited to call Alaska my home.
I have always had a passion for people, traveling, learning new cultures, taking pictures and getting involved in the community.
My passions are what drew me to go to journalism school at the University of Arkansas. Woo Pig!
During my time reporting and anchoring for the university’s award-winning on and off campus newscast, I have won multiple NATAS Mid America Emmys for breaking news newscast and breaking news reporting, multiple national scholar competitive awards for journalism, and won Mark of Excellence Award's first-place for best all-around newscast with my news team UATV. I also interned for KNWA and FOX 24 in Fayetteville, Arkansas while working on my degree. During my senior year, I shot and produced a documentary, Voice of the Razorbacks. The documentary has been in multiple film festivals and won the highest award at the Bison Bison Film Festival.
After Graduation, I traveled from Dallas, Texas, to Bozeman, Montana, where I landed my first reporting job. There I covered statewide stories and went live for the Billings, Great Falls, Bozeman, Butte, Missoula, Kalispell and Helena Markets. I spent more than a year in Bozeman covering wildfires, frozen deaths, large mass fish kills the special election, weather, traffic, Confederate monuments and many community stories.
When I am not reporting, I am exploring the community with my pup Coco, working on community service projects and taking pictures of the beautiful scenery and wildlife in Alaska.
Since I moved to Alaska, I have already fallen in love with the area and Alaskans. I am so excited to explore all of Alaska and I can’t wait to tell Alaskan's stories. If you have any stories or news tips please feel free to send them my way to firstname.lastname@example.org.
