About

Journalist – Communicator – Storyteller

After years away, I find myself back home – living in and reporting on the city that helped shape me: Washington, DC.

Working as a freelance journalist has been the gift I never saw coming in my career.

I focused solely on local news for several years, celebrating two EMMY nominations, and more importantly, gaining trusted sources in my community. When I got married and moved home to Washington, DC, I decided to actively pursue freelance journalism and new experiences. Four years later, my career in DC has given me the opportunity to cover local, national and international news for a number of outlets and companies.

Currently, you’ll find me filling in for the Hearst Washington Bureau as a national correspondent and you'll hear me internationally on Voice of America as a radio anchor.

I very proudly spent nearly a year as a multi-skilled journalist for WUSA9 as well. I’ve made a number of appearances on Hearst’s nationally syndicated political magazine "Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien," adding to the program's coverage of the 2016 Presidential Election. I've also worked as a field producer for an award winning video production company out of the DC area.

Prior to moving to Washington, I lived in Virginia Beach and worked for Hampton Roads, Virginia’s top-rated television station, WAVY-TV 10.

At WAVY I was honored with the EMMY nominations; one for my coverage of a tornado that left a baby dead, and another for my story on a decades-old rape case that involved a woman pressing charges against her step-father. I’ve also worked at WFMY News 2 in Greensboro, North Carolina and CBS19 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Community Member – Mother – Military Spouse

While I love telling your stories – I’m also passionate about the story I am creating every day with my family in the community we live in.

My husband and I love to explore the city and wander until we discover something new. Recipe testing, running races, the Washington Nationals and daydreaming about our travel bucket list: yes, these are a few of my favorite things! In 2017, our daughter Anastasia was born! After becoming a mother and having Anastasia prematurely, birth and new motherhood has become another passion and fascination for me. I love to share and explore all the resources Washington, DC has to offer to new moms.
