Born and raised in Wausau, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in communications with a double emphasis in public relations and electronic media from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in 2012. “Go Pack Go!”
Before coming to Milwaukee, I worked my way from a production assistant to audio operator at WFRV-TV Channel 5, to video editor and writer at FOX11-WLUK in Green Bay.
My job duties at FOX6 News include producing and posting interactive content to FOX6Now.com and running our social media pages including Facebook and Twitter.
In my spare time, you can catch me riding my bicycle, attending local music shows, crafting, or perhaps devouring a giant pretzel at one of Milwaukee’s awesome beer gardens!
I am very passionate about my job and am truly proud to be the person who brings you your news via FOX6Now.com.
