I’m thrilled to be working in Wisconsin’s largest city! I joined the FOX6 news team as a reporter in June 2016.
Milwaukee is just a short 1.5 hours from home for me. I was born and raised in Madison, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a double major in journalism and gender and women’s studies.
Before coming to Milwaukee, I reported at TV stations in Wausau, Madison and as far away as Wichita, Kan. Some of the most memorable stories I’ve covered so far in my career include a mass shooting at Excel Industries in Hesston, Kan., the first-ever child sex trafficking case prosecuted in Marathon County, Wis. and the recall election of Gov. Scott Walker.
When I’m not chasing down the big story of the day, I’m likely playing with my two dogs: Raleigh, a chihuahua, and Juneau, a Siberian husky. They’re quite the duo! I’m also passionate about women’s issues and am an activist for survivors of domestic violence.
I enjoy covering viewers’ compelling stories most. If you have a story idea or just want to say “hi,” feel free to email me.

GRAFTON — There were at least eight burglaries involving salons in Milwaukee County and Ozaukee County Saturday, Oct. 12.

In September, FOX6 News told you about the community fundraising effort after the family’s property flooded. The initial goal was just to get the driveway finished before winter.

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department says the suspect, David Seal, refused to pull over during a traffic stop at 52nd Street and 22nd Avenue in Kenosha. But instead of speeding away, Seal drove off under the 30 miles per hour speed limit. Dashcam video shows Seal’s 14-mile, 45-minute long chase with Kenosha County sheriff’s deputies. Despite […]

MILWAUKEE — There is more fallout now in the ICE arrest of an undocumented immigrant in Milwaukee. The incident sparked controversy when video surfaced of agents taking the man into custody in front of his family — and with help from Milwaukee police. Even Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has called for the Fire and Police Commission to review the incident. But now, ICE officials say they had no choice in part because of sanctuary communities’ policies and practices. Four days […]
