I am a general assignment reporter and anchor for CBS3 Eyewitness News in my hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In my three years at CBS3, I’ve covered countless national news stories, including the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial and re-trial and the week-long search for four young men who mysteriously disappeared from a suburban Philadelphia community. I also received a 2017 Mid-Atlantic Emmy nomination in feature reporting for “Of Love and War,” the story of a Vietnam veteran’s unexpected reunion with a woman adopted as an infant from a Vietnamese orphanage.
Previously, I was an investigative reporter with WMAR-TV in Baltimore, Maryland, exposing troubling flaws with the city’s billing of water customers and handling of its widespread illegal dumping problem. I extensively covered the successful, grassroots effort that resulted in the FDA’s stricter labeling of debilitating side effects associated with certain fluoroquinolone antibiotics. My investigative report, “Does Baltimore’s 311 app work?” was featured at 2015’s Investigative Reporters and Editors conference’s “60 story ideas in 60 minutes” workshop.
While pursuing a master’s degree at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, I started my professional career on Capitol Hill as a Washington, D. C. based correspondent for KTVQ-TV in Billings, Montana. I’ve also reported and anchored in Huntsville, Alabama at WAFF-TV and in York, Pennsylvania at WPMT-TV.
I am a proud graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia’s distinguished Central High School, where I serve on the scholarship committee. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering in my community and mentor several early-career and aspiring journalists. I am a member of the advisory board for Career Wardrobe, a non-profit organization that provides work-appropriate clothing and job training to low-income and underemployed men and women. I also actively support CADEkids, a drug, alcohol and gambling prevention program operating in 32 underserved Philadelphia schools.
