Hello everyone!

Thank you for viewing my page! I am the current HOI News Daybreak Producer. I look forward to bringing you local and intriguing news stories every morning. I have worked at WEEK/HOI since May 2015. While at the station, I previously worked as an Associate Producer and the 25 News Today Producer. 

I graduated from Monmouth College in May 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies and Public Relations, along with a Journalism minor. There, I participated in MC-TV, the college's television station, as a Multi-Media Journalist and Co-Anchor. I was promoted to Executive Producer and Main Anchor my senior year. During the fall semester of my senior year, I interned at WHBF-TV in Rock Island, IL, where I gained experience in news-writing and reporting. Another extra-curricular activity I participated in was track, where I was an All-Conference Medalist my senior year.

I grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago. I have always been interested in broadcasting since I was a little girl. I grew up watching Chicago-area newscasts with my family, which inspired me to work in journalism.

Outside of WEEK/HOI, you may see me at Target on the weekends. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching the Chicago Blackhawks and listening to music. I am also a huge dog lover! If you ever see me out and about, feel free to say hello!
