I joined FOX 4 in 2002 as a General Assignment/Traffic Reporter. A thrill of a ride flying in SKYFOX covering breaking news and traffic conditions around the region for several years.

In 2011, I moved to the anchor desk, to FOX 4 News at 9 a.m. and our Noon broadcast. If there is one constant in news, it’s change. No two days are the same, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Proud to call Kansas City home.
