I'm excited to be at WJXT and to be back in Florida, the state where I was born and raised.

I grew up in Sebring, Florida, and graduated from Florida A&M University with a degree in accounting. But I knew in my heart that accounting wasn't my passion; journalism was.

After graduating, I received an internship at ABC News in New York City. That internship led to a position at WABC-TV, where I worked on the assignment desk and with just about everyone in the newsroom. I also worked as a camerawoman with NY1 News, New York City's local cable station.

I then accepted a position at NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, where I worked with and learned from some of the best in the business.

Before coming to News4Jax, I spent two years at KFSM in Fayetteville, Arkansas, anchoring and reporting. There I reported on everything from deadly tornadoes to Joplin recovery to a plane crash and even got the chance to interview President Clinton.

In my spare time you'll find me singing and hanging out with my family. I have aunts, cousins and more right here in Jacksonville.
