Wow, Colorado is absolutely beautiful! With nearly 300 days of sunshine and gorgeous mountains everywhere you look, what's not to love?

I'm a Jersey girl by way of California. But, before coming to the Mile High City, I spent 3 years as an evening anchor and reporter in Monroe, Louisiana. I reported on everything from breaking news to political and local government investigations. One of the biggest stories I uncovered was payroll fraud in the city's engineering department. I also reported live in Washington, D.C. for President Obama's inauguration, interviewed veteran journalists like Dan Rather and covered the American Idol Finale from Los Angeles.

Having the opportunity to cover meaningful and impactful stories is what drew me to this business. Every day is different and with that comes a variety of exciting challenges and endless opportunities to learn something new. But, the greatest gift is being able to make a difference in the communities and the lives of viewers. That's why I love my job.

In addition to being a journalist, I'm also an athlete (don't let the makeup fool you :) ). I enjoy all kinds of sports to include rowing, horseback riding and volleyball. I attended Howard University to play Lacrosse, but four years of playing wasn't enough! After I graduated, I served as the head coach of the Women's Lacrosse team at the University of San Diego. That was a lot of fun! Now that I'm in Colorado, my new hobbies and interests are hiking, rafting, biking, and anything else out doors that I can try.

I'm a proud Rotarian and member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I enjoy community service and helping others.

I'm grateful that my journey has taken me here, not only to Colorado, but to KUSA-TV. I'm sure you've heard it before but it's true, some of the nation's best journalists are at 9NEWS and I'm very thankful to be part of this hard working team.

Thanks for checking out my bio and if you have any comments, story ideas or you just want to say hi, feel free to e-mail me, send a tweet or a Facebook message!
