People always ask me how I got into sports reporting. The answer is quite simple: sports have always been a part of my life.
My earliest memory of actual reporting was in middle school when I would type up the introductions for the Bullets starting lineup, complete with the dramatic spellings like "Juwannnnn Hoooooward."
I always knew if I didn’t play sports for a living, I would want to cover them, so I did.
After graduating from Good Counsel High School, I attended James Madison University, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in media arts & design, and minor in sports communication.
After college I remember getting a phone call from George Michael. He asked me to join the NBC 4 sports team as a producer. I spent two years at WRC and was then hired in 2007 for my first on-air gig at NBC29 in Charlottesville, VA.
I hit the ground running in Charlottesville, with the hope that one day I could be a sportscaster in my hometown. That phone call came from Dave Feldman two and a half years later, and I was headed back home to Maryland.
In 2009, I started my FOX 5 journey. I have since had the pleasure of winning my first Emmy Award, and covering the D.C. area's top stories, like the drafting of Robert Griffin, III in New York, and the Nats, Caps and Skins in the playoffs.
My time off is always spent with family and friends. Baseball has a special place in my heart. I met my husband Brandon while in Charlottesville, when he played for UVA. Since 2007, I have traveled with him around the country as he plays professional baseball. He's currently with the Tampa Bay Rays. I missed his first ever big league at bat, it was at Camden Yards in 2011. He hit a home run, I was in the parking lot, and missed it. I had to anchor the sports that night. He'll never let me forget it. Like I would anyway!
Thanks for all the support, I love being able to bring the sports news to you, and I'll see you on TV!
