I joined the Your News Now family in the Spring of 2009. However, I'm no stranger to Lima. I grew up in Mercer County, and my family made regular trips to the "big city" to visit family and to shop.
My career also started in Lima. I began as a reporter at FOX 25 in the summer of 2007. While there, I literally got my "feet wet" in the news business. My first major story was covering the devastating flooding in Ottawa and Findlay.
At FOX 25, I held just about every position in the newsroom—reporter, producer, news director. My passion, however, remained out in the field. So, when the NBC and FOX newsrooms merged, I returned to my love of reporting.
I was recognized two years in a row by the Associated Press as the Best Small Market reporter in Ohio. The AP has also recognized my enterprise and feature reporting skills.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and baby boy. If you see us out, don't hesitate to say hi or share a story idea!
