I've been breaking major stories in Florida for more than a decade.
My tenacity and persistence have brought change to the communities in which I’ve worked.
As an anchor, I use my enterprise reporting experience to add color and context to the news of the day. I help direct editorial decisions through my experience as a leader in the newsroom. I engage with viewers using empathy that is genuine yet no-nonsense. My range provides the warmth to wake viewers up each morning, and the credibility to bring them the big news of the day at night.
I continue to break major stories including an ongoing investigation into attacks on postal workers and the fight for local first responders to receive treatment for PTSD and occupational cancer. My work exposing a corrupt HOA resulted in a criminal investigation of the property management team. I have exposed the deaths of inmates due to lack of medical care, and a miscarriage behind bars at the hands of the same medical company. I broke major updates about the Pulse shooter in the hours and days following the deadly attack in our backyard. I uncovered a baby broker business inside a local prison, and exposed the actions of a local judge who sent a domestic violence victim to jail after the young woman skipped out on her abuser’s trial. Reporting on that case led to the judge in question being sanctioned by the Florida Supreme Court. My questions have forced a police chief out of office, and a year-long investigation prompted a local school with deplorable conditions to be torn down and rebuilt.
I have earned 10 Emmy nominations for my work as well as an Edward R. Murrow and an Associated Press Award.
Using journalism as advocacy, I’ve helped highlight the horrors of human trafficking on Central Florida streets and the new laws in place to help survivors. My work on this topic has allowed me to serve as a committee member for Samaritan Village, a nonprofit focused on healing women from the trauma of trafficking.
In 2021, my husband and I welcomed our son, who is the driving force behind our continued work in journalism. We enjoy making improvements to our home, exploring new restaurants in our neighborhood, and spending time with our rescue dogs; a Pekingese named Murrow and a Shih Tzu named Emmy.
