I’m thrilled to be reporting in the Hoosier state and helping to tell the stories in our community!

I joined the CBS4/FOX59 team as a reporter in June 2018. I moved to Indianapolis after living in East Tennessee for two years – reporting for WATE 6 On Your Side in Knoxville. During my time there, I covered several national stories like the deadly Gatlinburg wildfires and Chattanooga school bus crash in 2016. I also did extensive coverage on the drug epidemic in East Tennessee.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, the University of Southern California was my dream school. I received my bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. I also minored in Political Science. During my time on campus, I reported, anchored and produced for the award-winning ‘Annenberg TV News’.

For two years, I was also involved with USC’s Spirit Leaders. I led stadium wide cheers during football games in the famous Los Angeles Coliseum.

Most of my family lives in California but I’m so happy to be close to a few aunts and uncles who live in the Indianapolis area.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and travelling.
