Professional Experience

I joined the WINK News team in June 2020. I’m a is one of our general assignment reporters, so it’s fair to say I know a little bit about a lot.

I was previously was a reporter at WJHG/WECP in Panama City Beach, Florida. There I covered Hurricane Michael which devasted the area, but I feel blessed I got to see the community rebuild.

Awards and Recognition

My work in the field lead me to win a Florida Associated Press award on some of the coverage after Hurricane Michael.

News Philosophy

Everyone has a story to be told.

Hobbies, Interest & Community Involvement

Bake and cook healthy goodies. I also have an aloe plant I’m is really trying to keep alive. More than anything, I love getting outdoors and exercising with my dog Maggie Mae.
