Reporter

Charleston, SC

Professional Experience:

WICU/WSEE; Erie, Pennsylvania - News Reporter/Anchor

News Philosophy:

Being entrusted with the public's confidence is an immense undertaking. Journalists must always remain thoughtful and responsible.

Education:

Penn State University - Journalism

Hometown:

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Family:

My parents live in Pittsburgh. I have three sisters (all in finance!) spread throughout the Northeast.

Hobbies & Interests:

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, testing out new restaurants and volunteer “wish-granting” with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I love being a tourist in my own town!

Favorite Books:

Any book by Dan Brown or The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.

Likes Best About the Lowcountry:

From the beaches to the buildings, I love the beautiful cityscape (and the history behind it all!). You also can't beat making your home in a place that's so attractive to family and friends -- that means more visits from home!

Most Interesting Assignment:

After being placed for adoption in 1959, a Georgetown woman was able to track down her birth mother. I had the honor of sharing their story, and witnessing their long-awaited reunification at the Charleston International Airport.

Education:

  • Penn State University - Journalism
