November 2006What was your most memorable story? 
Covering the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans was extremely moving for me. We rode on an airboat rescue mission and saw the devastation up close. People did not want to leave their homes because they just didn't understand the enormity of the catastrophe. I will never forget the things I saw there. It was my proudest moment as a journalist (so far).How did you get started in TV? 
I grew up watching the news at home. My parents and grandparents passed on a legacy of being informed and actively participating in the world around you. I won an Optimist Oratorical Scholarship in the eighth grade and learned then that I enjoyed speaking in front of people and sharing information. I married those two loves, and a television journalist was born. I'm also just naturally curious. In college, I did news internships in Houston and Las Vegas. My first job out of college was at KXII-TV in Sherman, TX, where I started as a reporter and left as the main anchor. I won several awards at KXII. I am proudest of the first place award in 2004 from the TAPB for Best Specialty/Beat Reporting.
