"Storytelling has been the storyline of my life. My global upbringing always made me curious and interested to learn about people and the world around us. Throughout my career, I’ve been dedicated to bridging the divide by the power of journalism to show, discover, share and give a voice to people who help us understand the world we live in."
"Seattle is where I learned the craft of storytelling from some of the best journalists in the country. I got my start at KING-TV and KUOW radio. My journalism roots go back to those two stations which very much shaped me into the journalist I am today.
I’m proud to have been a part of those newsrooms."
"I paved my own way into this industry. I stepped into a television newsroom for the first time when I was 14-years-old after asking a local news anchor to job shadow her. At 15, I convinced the editor of the local city paper to let me launch a weekly column giving youth a voice. It turned into a three-year column and I was quickly asked to fill-in for the staff reporters. In high school, I was the news anchor of the school’s morning TV show, the editor of the school paper, I interned at the local NPR station and I often spent time at the local TV stations after school and stuck around ‘till late night newscasts to soak up everything from the reporters and anchors who let me tag along. Those same journalists, years later, helped create my first reel for my first TV job and have turned into dear friends and colleagues. When I returned home to work for FOX Seattle, we'd run into each other covering stories in the field. Talk about a full circle moment.
I love what I do and I am so passionate about my work. There is nothing else I would rather do than be a journalist."
