Hey hey! I joined the Newsfix team as a Reporter/MMJ back in August 2017 after reporting for two years in Flint, Michigan at WEYI/WSMH.

I’m originally from South Carolina, and I received my bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from USC (the real one!) before reporting at my first news station in Augusta, Georgia.

I’m a small town girl, and the DFW has A LOT to offer, but I’m doing a pretty good job of exploring–especially at all of the restaurants!

Story ideas or tips? Hit me up!
