PROFILE

Currently I am the evening anchor at the FOX affiliate in Mobile, AL. With over 10 years working in television, I have grown into a seasoned on-air personality. Some major news events that I have covered include, the tornado outbreak in northern Alabama, the BP Oil Spill and Hurricanes Ike and Gustav. Throughout my career, I have been afforded opportunities to work in television markets in Ohio, Michigan, and North Carolina. All along the way, I have been continually recognized for my ability to connect with viewers. My genuine passion for storytelling and for empowering my community is reflected both on-air and in various community outreach events.
