Digital Content Director / WMCActionNews5.com
My experience in broadcast journalism began in Grand Forks, North Dakota in 2002, where I worked as a production assistant, associate producer, and a news reporter at WDAZ-TV.
I am a very proud Fighting Sioux alumna and hockey fan having graduated magna cum laude from the University of North Dakota in 2007.
After graduation, I moved to Boise, Idaho where I began my career at KTVB. There, I produced the Midday News at Noon, News at Six, Today’s Morning News, and was promoted to oversee KTVB.COM in 2010.
I was honored with an Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for my work on Today’s Morning News in 2008. I have also received three additional Emmy nominations, and a first place Idaho Press Club award for best multimedia reporting. In the two years I worked as senior digital content producer for KTVB.COM, the digital team was honored with two national Edward R. Murrow awards (2010, 2011).
In April 2012, I moved to Memphis to manage the digital platforms at WMC Action News 5. That is where you can find me now, enjoying baseball games, local beer, downtown life, and exploring the southern cities I had yet to experience before moving out east.
