I grew up in an area where "everything is bigger in Texas," specifically Houston, Texas.

I fell in love with journalism at an early age and continued that path by chasing my dreams attending Sam Houston State University double majoring in Mass Communications and Communications Studies.

I continued my education in earning a Masters Degree of Science in Sports Management. Along with my passion for journalism, I was a cheerleader my entire life, which gained my interest towards sports. During my years of education, I interned with Root Sports Network, Houston Super Bowl Host Committee, Houston Dynamo, and sideline reported for ESPN3. Also, I have appeared on countless Red Carpet events where I was able to interview well-known celebrities, along with the Mayor of Houston.

A fun fact about me is I enjoyed teaching fitness classes in my hometown, where I was able to encourage individuals to work towards healthier version of themselves. In my free time, I enjoy working out, binge-watching shows on Netflix, and spending time talking with my family.

I have always been in love with storytelling, and was born with a curious mind to want to know more. I believe there is a story in everyone and to have the ability to tell their story has always been a blessing.

I am excited to tell the stories of the Topekans and learn more about what Topeka, Kansas has in store. Make sure to keep up to date with me on Facebook and Twitter, and please feel free to reach out to me! I can't wait to get to know you all and share your stories!
