I am the Assignment Manager and produce many of WHNT News 19's special projects. I have been working here since October of 2005, but I have been hanging around this station for a good chunk of my life! Growing up in Huntsville, it was a huge dream of mine to work here.

When I was a student at Buckhorn High School, I started coming up to WHNT to job shadow and learn about the business. I knew right away this was the right career path for me. After graduating from Buckhorn in 2001, I headed down to the "loveliest village on the plains" to get my degree in Mass Communication. I spent 4 of the best years of my life at Auburn, and you will still find me at most home games cheering on those Auburn Tigers! War Eagle!

After graduating from Auburn in 2005, I was very blessed to be offered a job as a producer straight out of college. I started as the weekend producer, worked my way up to producing WHNT News 19 This Morning, and then was named Executive Producer of WHNT NEWS 19 at 10pm. I am now the Assignment Manager, but I still produce from time to time. In fact, I am blessed to have been award with 2 regional Emmy awards and an Edward R. Murrow award for some of the special projects that I have produced. I have also been recognized several times by the Associated Press and Alabama Broadcasters Association for some of my work.

Working at WHNT really is a dream come true for me. I am so happy to be in my hometown sharing stories with the wonderful people of the Tennessee Valley.
