Where Else Worked:
I started in visual storytelling at the Columbus Dispatch as a videographer and web producer in 2011. That September, I moved to Missouri to launch the Jefferson City bureau for KMIZ-TV (and ABC and Fox affiliate). I was promoted to weekend anchor and spent two years in that role before leaving in July 2014.
School: Ohio University. E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. BSJ. 2011.
It’s humbling to see the work we do as journalists affect real change in our communities – from a simple community call to action, to changing the discourse and law. My first story at 9 On Your Side was about a Westwood daycare that had all its field trip money stolen. The Tri-State stepped up an more than returned what was taken within days – incredible!
This is home. I have family from Cincinnati up through my hometown of Beavercreek, near Dayton. I couldn’t be happier to be back near family and within a two hour drive of so many of my closest friends!
