I joined the WQAD news team in June of 2012. I’m a proud product of the Quad Cities, graduating from Alleman High School before heading off to college at the University of Missouri in Columbia.

At Mizzou, I graduated with degrees in Radio-TV Journalism and English, as well as a minor in Business. I also worked for mid-Missouri’s NBC affiliate, KOMU-TV, as a reporter and web editor.

I currently live in Rock Island and couldn’t be happier to be back in the QC with my family, just in time for Whitey’s pumpkin shakes and AHS football.

If you want to talk good books, Tiger sports, or story ideas, drop me a line at I look forward to meeting even more of this great community!
