When/Why did you start working here? I joined WMAR in September 2013 as a General Assignment Reporter and have since joined the In Focus team as an Investigative Reporter. I previously worked as a Reporter in Richmond, VA and as an Anchor/Reporter in Macon, GA. WMAR offered a new, challenging workplace, great coworkers, and a city I can call my own! :)
What are you most proud of when it comes to your work? I am proud of the journey this crazy career has taken me on! I think one of my proudest moments was signing my very first contract-- even before graduating college! It was such a rush taking the first leap to making a dream a reality.
Interesting fact(s) about your personal life? My husband and I adopted a rescue puppy in June and every day is a new adventure with him! I love running, decorating, bargain shopping, and trying new recipes! I've become addicted to Pinterest-- I've gotten such great ideas from it, I just always forget to repin! :)
What do you love about living in the Baltimore area? I love how everyone here in Baltimore LOVES Baltimore! There is such pride in this city. You can't walk through downtown neighborhoods without seeing Maryland flags, Orioles banners, and Ravens gear at almost every home. Do I need to even mention Old Bay, crabs, and Natty Boh?? :)
Apps you can't live without? ABC2 News app, Twitter. I know, it's so basic, but it keeps me in the loop of what's going with just a click!
What were you like as a kid? I loved sports! Soccer and softball were my two favorites-- and I eventually went on to play field hockey in high school. I knew since I was about 10 that I wanted to be a reporter. I used to set up our family's big VHS camcorder and have my sister help me report on the news from the kitchen table.
