I was only 15 when I first stepped foot into the studios at CBS 6. Back in the late 1980's, I was lucky enough to be chosen to be one of WTVR's For Kids' Sake Ambassadors. The first day that I visited Channel 6, I decided "what I wanted to be when I grew up."
We had a Saturday morning kids' show, and my first story to ever air in Richmond was about a teen dance club called "Rock NXS" that used to be open in Henrico County.
I was born here and grew up in Henrico. After graduating from J.R. Tucker High School, I went on to James Madison University to major in Mass Communications, with a minor in Political Science.
Each summer, I came home to CBS 6 as an intern to continue to learn everything that I could about television news. After graduating from JMU, I took my first job at a small community television station in Martinsville, Virginia.
Now, after almost 15 years in this business in Virginia, I have spent time anchoring and reporting in Roanoke and here in Richmond.
The majority of my career I have reported on health and medical issues. I am passionate about that, because it is an area of the news that impacts all of our lives.
My husband Ben and I live in Chesterfield with our son Luke. We love spending time with all of my family members who live here in Richmond.
We have two dogs and a cat. Two of our pets came from local rescue organizations, and that is one of the reasons I love doing the "Paws for Pets" segments so much.
Working at CBS 6 is like coming home for me. When I was a teenager, I dreamed of having the opportunity to do exactly what I am doing right now.
