I'm up at 2:30 a.m. and I don't drink coffee.
I'm ready for lunch and a Mountain Dew by 7 a.m., if I haven't snuck one in already.
By noon, I'm beginning my second full time job as a wife and mom to twin toddlers and a border collie, Luna.
I love both jobs, covering hard news and human interest stories across Kentucky and Indiana.
I started my career in journalism more than a decade ago, graduating from the Mizzou Mafia with my bachelor's in journalism. I began covering general assignment and political news in Columbia and Jefferson City, Missouri at KOMU 8 News and KMOX Radio. From there, I headed for KHQA News, in Quincy, Illinois. It's the smaller markets where you learn the most. I was a reporter, anchor and producer in the same shift. I came back home to Louisville in 2013.
I've covered record snowfalls, the Opioid crisis, childhood cancer rates and the game changer called immunotherapy. Today, it's all about COVID-19 and the vaccine.
