I am happy to call Roanoke my new home! I originally grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I attended the University of Maryland where I received a bachelor's degree in communication and history, and a master's degree in broadcast journalism. After school, I worked as a reporter and anchor in North Carolina for almost five years before moving to Roanoke. I love the Ravens, Orioles and Terps. Since starting at WDBJ7 in August 2018, I've started two series that shines a positive light on our hometowns. Each week I feature a local restaurant called Hometown Eats, and once a month I highlight a teacher, coach or mentor going above and beyond for local kids in Hometown Mentor. If you have any story ideas, I'd love to hear them! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or connect with me on social media.
