I am excited to be joining the WIBW team! I feel very fortunate to be learning from the best in the state I’ve always called home.

I grew up in Fairway, Kansas right down the road from KCTV5 where my mom worked as a reporter and anchor.

I spent a few after-school hours in the studio and control room watching my mom write and edit her newscasts. From time to time I tagged along on assignments and developed a love for storytelling.

That love took me to DePauw University, a small liberal arts college in Greencastle, Indiana. I graduated in 2017 with a B.A. in Communication and an emphasis in journalism. During my time at DePauw, I served as News Director for D3TV, DePauw’s television station as well as WGRE-FM, the on-campus radio station. In that role, I co-anchored six hours of live election night coverage of the November 2016 election. I produced and co-hosted a weekly 60-minute news show “State of the Castle.”

When I’m not telling your stories, I’m trying to find the perfect chocolate ice cream, running, reading and spending time with my family.
I am passionate about the power and responsibility of broadcast news and nothing fuels my fire than a great story. Send me yours!
