From Music City to Rocket City

Dear friends and colleagues,
I wanted to share with you a new chapter in my life and career. After much thought and consideration, I accepted a position as a morning and midday news anchor at the ABC affiliate in Huntsville, WAAY 31 TV. I loved living and working in Nashville for the past several years. Nashville is an amazing city filled with warm and wonderful people! I am very grateful for the life long friendships that I have made here while working with incredible, talented, and professional journalists at News 2. I loved my time in Nashville and now I am looking forward to this new chapter beginning in February!

Today was a gift!

Today was a gift!

It was cold outside yet our family managed to warm the hearts of many. We spent the day traveling the streets of Nashville and delivering meals to people in need who are homeless without a Christmas meal. We met amazing people today and are surrounding them with love and light, creating lasting holiday memories we will cherish forever.

My Holiday Wish for You: 

My Holiday Wish for You:

This season, may you be blessed with good health, happiness, prosperity, peace and love. Best wishes for a happy holiday season and a happy new year.
From my family to yours,
Happy Holidays!
