When I was honored to join the FOX 5 DC team, I knew it was going to be something special. I love this part of the country for its four seasons (I grew up in Arizona!), and it was always a dream to one day report from the heart of all the action!
Prior to D.C., I spent three years anchoring and reporting in Austin, Texas. During my time there (besides eating my way through the city’s best tacos and BBQ), I covered just about everything — from important political issues facing the state to severe weather, to iconic entertainment events like South by Southwest festival. I’ve been in the middle of Congress Avenue reporting live during immigration protests and marches on the Capitol, dangling 38 stories in the air reporting live while rappelling and have reported live in flood-ravaged communities during Hurricane Harvey. My range of reporting garnered me a Lone Star Emmy in 2016.
But I’m most proud of my special investigative piece on the rape kit backlog — exposing the loophole in Texas law that allows kits to pile up with no set testing date, leaving victims with no recourse and predators free to harm again. My work, entitled “Texas Sex Crimes,” earned me my second Lone Star Emmy in 2017.
I began my news career as an anchor and reporter in Grand Junction, Colorado where I covered the 2012 presidential election and broke several other local political and energy stories.
I also really love reporting on tech developments in our world, and STEM-related issues in general (science, technology, engineering and math).
I’m always looking for a great story to tell, so please don’t hesitate to reach out!
