• Follow me on:

I’m proud and grateful to be a member of the Fox 6 News team. I arrived in January 2011, and you might say my “initiation” was covering the union protests in Madison, just weeks after my first day on the job.

I came to Milwaukee from Green Bay, where I reported for WFRV for two and a half years. My experiences in Green Bay included reporting on record flooding, a decades-old murder investigation, and the construction of world’s largest igloo. I inevitably became a Packers fan and had the terrible timing to leave Green Bay just two weeks before they won the Super Bowl.

Before that, I spent a year at WKBT in La Crosse working as a reporter/anchor.

During my years in TV news, I’ve been honored with Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Awards and regional Emmy nominations.

I became interested in TV news as a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After internships at WCCO in Minneapolis and NBC-15 in Madison, I landed a full-time on-air internship at WISC, where I worked throughout my senior year.

I grew up in Apple Valley, MN where I graduated from Eastview High School. Growing up, I wanted to become a writer, but I lack the patience to sit down and write a book. The fast-paced business of TV journalism is much better fit for my personality!

In my free time, I like to run outside on southeast Wisconsin’s beautiful trails, and read my kindle. I spend as much time as possible with my husband, who fortunately doesn't mind eating ham sandwiches every night while his wife is off reporting the news.

If you see me out on a story, please come over and say hello!
