I am the hometown girl here at FOX6 and I couldn’t be happier about it! I’ve been a member of the FOX6 Wakeup team since September of 2004.

Born and raised in Menomonee Falls, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “Go Badgers!”

My first job in television news was in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I also worked at a station in Springfield, Missouri before earning the opportunity to come home and cover news in Milwaukee.
