Hi, everyone! I’m a reporter and weekend anchor at WQAD.
I joined the Channel 8 news team back 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.
Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to go tornado chasing through Northern Texas, cover the 2016 Iowa Caucus from Des Moines, and spend a week out at the John Deere Classic each summer.
I currently live in Rock Island and couldn’t be happier to be back in the QC — close to my family and Whitey’s pumpkin shakes. In my free time, you can find me studying for my Master’s through Gonzaga University, watching Mizzou football, or checking out new restaurants in the Quad Cities.
I look forward to meeting even more of this great community! Feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
