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. 

Many thanks for your time + happy to answer any inquiries!
