• Follow me on:

Growing up, I always had a pen and paper in hand; taking notes, writing journals and begging my parents to tell me stories. But in college, instead of following those interests, I decided to attend UC Berkeley as a Molecular Cell Biology major. The summer before my first semester, I interned at NBC in my hometown, San Diego. From then on, I was hooked on the fast paced, exciting world of TV news. I ditched science and never looked back!

My career has taken me from California to Las Vegas to New York and now back to California. I worked my way up from production assistant and writer at KUSI in San Diego, to producer at KTNV in Las Vegas and then to Reporter in NYC.

I spent the past two years carrying a big camera and tripod through the streets of Brooklyn and The Bronx. I was a “One Man Band” reporter and fill-in Anchor for News 12. While in NYC, I covered Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, the mayor’s race, dozens of snow storms and lots of crime.

I’m known around the newsroom for: being a klutz!

What keeps me going: iced coffee , peanut M&Ms and sunshine.

I give back to my community by: Shopping and eating local as much as possible. I love that our area is a great place to do that! Also I believe little random acts of kindness go a long way. Making someone else’s day makes me happy.

Why FOX40? FOX40 brought me back home to California. It’s a place for me to take on new challenges while working with nice, talented people.

My greatest TV moment: After Hurricane Sandy, I did a report on a religious center in Queens that was badly damaged and in desperate need of aid. After the story aired, I found out that my report prompted FEMA to call the religious center and give it the assistance it needed.

TV moment I’d like to forget: Fainting in the studio during a live CNN broadcast. It happened during a short internship during college. (I had slept only a few hours before my 3am call time.) Security came to get me and I was mortified! I guess I made a lasting impression but not the kind I was hoping for!

If I had free time, I would: Do more yoga, hiking and biking. Also I’d like to spend a day doing absolutely NOTHING but that may never happen – I always have a to-do list!
