I'm an Anchor & “A-block" Multimedia Journalist who leads the newscast. I shoot, report, write, edit & produce content for all platforms including tv, radio & digital. My work has earned me a NY Emmy, CINE Golden Eagle, Humane Society Genesis Award, Gracie Award & several Mid-Atlantic, Suncoast & Lower Great Lakes Emmy nominations, respectively.

I have appeared on TV One, Oxygen & Investigation Discovery channels to discuss my news reports.

I work as an Anchor & Multimedia Reporter for the CBS affiliate in Cleveland, OH. My beat is general assignment and I covered the Cleveland Cavaliers' historic championship, the Republican National Convention, the 2016 Presidential election in the battleground "Buckeye" state & the 2016 World Series. My reporting on “Facebook Killer” was nominated for a NATAS Lower Great Lakes Emmy Award in 2018. In 2021, I received a national Gracie Award for my series of reports: “The Next 400: #DefendBlackWomen.”

Previously, I worked at CBS stations in Wichita, KS and Gainesville, FL: chasing storms, digging dirt & scooping stories. I became known for my "good gets," scoring exclusive interviews on numerous stories.

In 2008 I was NJ Correspondent for MTV News' Choose or Lose team: 1 of 51 journalists covering the US presidential election. I produced content for all of MTV's platforms from right out of my backpack. The initiative earned my team a Community Service Campaign Emmy from National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

In 2005 I shot a half-hour documentary, Liberian Democracy: A Journey Back Home, that aired on PBS stations across the US. The film chronicled my experiences of meeting my relatives for the 1st time & coverage of the historic presidential election of Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the first female head of state in Africa. It is easily the most significant piece I've worked on in my short career for one reason: bridging both my personal & professional lives.

I hold a B.A. Journalism from Ernie Pyle School of Journalism at Indiana University & and a M.S. Journalism from Columbia University in the City of New York.

I serve on the National Association of Black Journalists Board of Directors as the Region II Director. #NABJ

I have worked for PBS, NPR & CBS affiliates in NJ, NY, FL, KS, OH & MTV News in NYC.
