I grew up in a family that believes there are no limits to what you can achieve. Education was a priority and college a necessity. I graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. When I changed my major to broadcasting I was told the field was too saturated. Getting a job in television would be tough. So what?

After graduating, My first job was as a country music disc jockey. Hey, it got my foot in the door. Nine months later, I was doing radio news reports and nine months after that I got my first television job as a morning anchor/reporter in Jackson, Tennessee. My career has taken me to Huntsville, Alabama and my current home of Milwaukee where I'm an anchor/reporter at Fox 6 News. I have been honored with several awards, including an Emmy nomination.

Being a southern girl, my friends still can't believe I live in a city that gets wind chills of 25 below zero. But I've made the adjustment and Milwaukee is truly home. Plus, I enjoy what I do. And, I am blessed that so many people allow me in their homes every evening.

If you have a story you'd like us to cover, call me. And, thanks for taking the time to read my bio.
