MULTIMEDIA JOURNALIST + PERSONALITY. DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER. EDITOR. CAMERA OPERATOR. CINEMATOGRAPHER. VOICEOVER ARTIST. STORYTELLER.
Born and raised in Kansas, storytelling (through music, television, newspaper, film + digital media) has been my passion since childhood.
While earning a B.S. degree in Broadcast Journalism & Communications from Fort Hays State University, I interned in two departments with Country Music Television (CMT Nashville 2009-10).
Upon graduation in December 2011, I began my news career as a multimedia journalist at KSN News (KSNW) in Wichita, KS and returned to Music City working for Fox 17 News (WZTV) in May 2013 - August 2018.
As a reporter who did her own shooting, editing and on-air reporting, I was honored to receive multiple awards from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters and a Regional Murrow Award. Also, I've been featured nationally on CNN.
In 2016, I started Be Reel Co. The multimedia company provides video production, editing and photography services for businesses, groups, individuals, artists + brands.
