Have you heard the phrase “West Coast, Best Coast?” Since I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with California and that’s putting it lightly. Luckily, I grew up in the Bay Area. What’s even luckier is now I get to be a reporter in my home state.

I didn’t truly appreciate this amazing place until I left. After graduating from UC Santa Barbara, I ventured across the country to start my journalism journey. I got my master’s degree at Boston University in broadcast journalism and thought after a year away I would head right back to the Golden State. But as is ever so true in this industry, nothing is predictable.

I traded my flip-flops for mountain boots and trekked to Grand Junction, Colorado, where I accepted my first job as a multimedia journalist.

Two years of snow instead of sun and lakes instead of beaches and now I can finally say I’m home!

Nothing is more fulfilling than pursuing my passion of storytelling in the place I first fell in love with the industry. When I do a story at FOX40 I don’t think I’m reporting the news to viewers, I truly feel like I’m reporting the news to neighbors, friends and family.

I look forward to all the opportunities Sacramento has to offer and can’t wait to meet as many people in this area as possible.

Feel free to contact me with story ideas I would love to hear from you!
