Let me first start by saying I’m uber excited to be here in the Panhandle and I can’t wait to tell your stories!

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, “The Show-Me State”. There, I attended Webster University, just a few miles from home and studied broadcast journalism and marketing.

To better hone my skills in front/behind the camera, I worked at STL-TV, the government-access station for the City of St. Louis where I hosted “Takin It to the Streets” and “STL TV Live” and directed for “City Corner”. I also interned at KMOV News Channel 4 and “1380 The Woman” talk radio.

After graduating, I worked in my hometown at KSDK as a production assistant where I was quickly promoted to Marketing Content Producer. I worked in research and programming as well. I also wrote for “Show Me St. Louis” an Emmy Award winning show and I created and monitored all content for Bounce TV in the St. Louis market.

Fun fact to know about me...after high school I joined a girls group and later signed a record deal with Universal Records...so yes I love music and dance!

In my free time I enjoy watching how-to’s and vlogs on YouTube as well as reading faith based books and devotionals. I’m currently looking for a good church home here in Amarillo. Email me with suggestions.

I’m very passionate about encouraging and motivating people in the community so if you have any story ideas don’t hesitate to contact me at
