I grew up in Edwardsville, IL, a suburb of St. Louis. I went to college at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, and got a degree in broadcast journalism.
How I came to live in Lawrence
I was hired as the K-12 education reporter for 6News. I did an internship at 6News about a year ago through NU and loved it so much I wanted to come back. Three months after I graduated, I got hired.
