I was born in Dallas, Texas, but I grew up in Houston with my parents and sister. I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas with a degree in broadcast journalism.
In 1994, I started my broadcast career at KAVU-TV in the small Texas town of Victoria. I anchored the weekend newscasts and served as both reporter and photographer for my own news stories.
Nine months later, I accepted a position at KTXS-TV in Abilene, Texas. I was primary anchor and education reporter for five years before moving to Richmond in 2000.
At WTVR, I started out as morning reporter and Saturday morning anchor. I was soon promoted to co-anchor CBS 6 This Morning. In addition to my anchoring duties, I was a reporter for Health Team 6.
In 2005, I left CBS 6 and moved to Alexandria, Virginia with my husband. I was a freelance reporter and anchor in the DC-area television market for WTTG, WBAL, Hearst Broadcasting and CNN Newsource where I had an opportunity to cover national politics from Capitol Hill and the White House. August 2009, I made the move back to Richmond and CBS 6. I resumed my former role as co-anchor of CBS 6 This morning. The big reason for my move back is my beautiful little girl, Jillian. I always thought of Richmond as a good place to raise a family. I have received the prestigious Edward R. Murrow award and The National Association of Black Journalists Salute to Excellence Award for the documentary, "Richmond's Slave Trade: Breaking the Chains of Silence." I am a member of The National Association of Black Journalists and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.
