Watch Live: President Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing

Hi my name is Kimberly McDougall, I am doing the only job I have dreamed about since I was 10 years old. I started reporting in high school and never quit. I went to the best college ever, the University of Alabama, and I am a raging Tide Fan.

The reason I wanted to do this job is because I feel being a reporter I can actually make a positive impact in my community. I am originally from California, but I spent some time in Chicago and Birmingham, Alabama. I came back to the Golden State last year, and I couldn’t be happier to be home.

I love camping, hiking and skiing. Living in Sacramento puts me so close to what I love the most, being outdoors. If I had more time, I would explore more trails and run a lot more. I would also read more books.

In the 10 years I have been a reporter, I have covered large stories such as the Natalee Holloway disappearance, I was even sent to Aruba. I also covered hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ivan. I was stationed on the Alabama Gulf Coast for more than a month covering the BP Oil Spill.

The story that impacted the reporter I am today was last April when I covered the deadly outbreak of tornadoes in Alabama that devastated the entire state. I stood less than five miles away from an EF-4 tornado, and watched as it leveled a majority of the city of Tuscaloosa. It’s one of those moments in life that truly changes you.

I have been awarded an Edward R. Murrow award, ABBY award, and numerous Associated Press Awards. I love being back in California, but I am still getting to know the area; if you have a story I must cover please please please E-mail me.
