News Director

“This is home” born and raised in Irmo, I am a proud native of Columbia. In a business that caters to change, I have been a constant at ABC Columbia News since 1995.

I lead the ABC Columbia News Team as News Director.
I also serve as the Consumer Reporter for Good Morning Columbia and ABC Columbia News at Noon.

Through the years, I have worked my way up the ranks…taking on every role in the newsroom from producer and reporter to anchor. I just can’t seem to leave this place!

I have received several awards, including an Associated Press award for consumer reporting and an Emmy Nomination for our news coverage of a deadly plane crash.

I have had the opportunity to cover some of the biggest stories in the state, from politics to Presidential visits. One of my favorite interviews, a one on one with Herman Boone, the real coach who inspired the movie “Remember the Titans.”

I feel honored to be trusted with the responsibilities of delivering news and information that’s important to the community I live in.

I am a graduate of Irmo High School and a graduate of Winthrop University. I am married to a former television reporter. I am a mommy. My husband and I are working on a major project; raising two young sons and a golden retriever…oh and simply trying to keep our house intact.
