I still remember watching the 1996 Summer Olympics and wanting to be just like Team USA gymnast, Dominique Dawes. My gymnastics career didn't last long, but I did eventually pursue volleyball, and even earned a full-ride to play volleyball at the Division I level at Appalachian State in North Carolina.

I knew my playing days would eventually come to an end, but didn't want to stop being around sports. So, I decided to pursue a broadcast journalism master's degree from Syracuse University.

While at Syracuse, I was fortunate enough to cover SU football, volleyball, men's and women's basketball and men's and women's lacrosse.

I absolutely love getting to talk to, and share the stories of the athletes I meet each day. I would describe myself as competitive and resilient. I'm always looking for ways to improve my craft.

I'm currently a sports anchor/reporter at the CBS and NBC affiliate in Augusta, Ga, where I've covered everything from the the Arnold Palmer Invitation, the Masters Tournament, the opening of SunTrust Park in Atlanta, to SEC and ACC football.

I've also interviewed pro athletes, such as Rickie Fowler, DeMarcus Lawrence and Patrick Reed.
