Hello Dayton! I am so excited to be a part of the morning news team here in Ohio bringing you all the latest about your morning commute.

I am a born and raised LA Native, so this whole concept of winter is a bit foreign! But I am always down for a good adventure.

I attended Loyola Marymount University in the coastal LA area of Playa Del Rey, and then pursued my Masters in Journalism from The University of Miami, Coral Gables. (Let's Go CANES). Upon my return to Los Angeles, I began working for Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. Five years later, here I am!

I started as a talent assistant, and eventually graduated to the role of producing packages, field producing, and used my on-air talent for a local website. During my years at ET I traveled the world, covered the red carpets of the Oscars, Golden Globes, Grammys, and numerous red carpet events. I am a huge sports fan so the high light of my year was always a week-long trip to The Super Bowl. Adding to my love of sports, I worked 3 years of FOX College football and the NCAA Pac 12 tournaments.

In my off time I love a good physical challenge. Every year, I complete the Baltimore Half Marathon with my best friend, although I wish we just went on fun trips to Jamaica, there is something so fulfilling about finishing the race together every year.

I come from a big family, of mostly boys which has made me one tough cookie, and one obnoxiously competitive person. Wouldn't change it for the world!

Although, I am a sunshine kid from California, I am looking forward to what Ohio has to offer.The one thing I do know, I won't have any lack of College Football in my life. How about them Buckeyes, eh?
