Hi! I’m currently living in (City), where I work at (Work Place) doing (Job Title). When I’m not working I like to (Hobby), (Interest) and (Passion). Connect with me!
I'm a television news professional who can do it all. I'm an anchor, reporter, photographer, editor, motivational speaker and self proclaimed social media freak. Oh, and did I mention I used to drive 18-wheelers for FedEx? I also love to travel abroad, eat out and cheer for the South Carolina Gamecocks!
Currently, I'm an evening anchor for KDKA CBS2 in Pittsburgh, PA. Before that, I co-anchored the early morning news program, Good Morning Cleveland, on WEWS-TV 5 (ABC) weekdays from 4:30-7am. While at WEWS I also developed a weekly franchise called Terrific Teacher Tribute in which I recognized a Northeast Ohio teacher who excels in the classroom. For this segment, I did everything myself including the writing, the camera work, editing and uploading of the information and finished video product to the station’s web site.
I have volunteered my time to numerous charitable and civic organizations including the Junior League of Cleveland, YWCA, The Women of Color Foundation, Black Pages of Ohio and ATHENA. I’ve served on the boards of both the Cleveland Area Alzheimer’s Association and Westside Community House.
I’m frequently called upon to emcee local events and speak to young students and church groups about turning dreams into goals and making them come true.
I’ve even been known to sing the National Anthem at various Cleveland sporting events.
I was recognized by The Ohio Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame as its Personality of the Year for 2009. I’ve been highlighted in Cleveland Magazine on numerous occasions including its Most Interesting People edition in 2010. In 2009, Kaleidoscope Magazine featured me as one of its 40 leaders under the age of 40.
Before moving to Cleveland, I worked for the CBS affiliate in Florence/ Myrtle Beach, S.C.
I was graduated from The University of South Carolina with a degree in Journalism. I also hold a Master’s degree in Business from Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio.
Now, back to that truck driving. I paid my way through college at The University of South Carolina by driving 18-wheelers for FedEx. On the weekends I fueled airplanes for the Columbia, SC based aviation company, Eagle Aviation.
In case you're wondering, I ALWAYS keep my Class A commercial truck driver's license current as you never know where life will take you. I’m hopeful though, that this TV thing works out.
