I must be dreaming! An anchor gig in my hometown! I am so happy to be in Erie, telling the stories which impact my neighbors every day.
I started my career with WICU 12 working the wee hours of the night. For the first two years of my career, I produced the morning show with Mark Soliday. I was sad to leave the morning crew, but excited when offered the reporter job I'd been striving for.
As a general assignment reporter, I focused on the crime beat since my first day on the job, and I love it! I feel I'm really making a difference in the Erie community, meeting new people, and telling the stories that affect everybody every day.
One of the things I love about my job is that no single day is EVER the same. I love breaking news situations. In fact, twice I received an "Outstanding Spot News" award from the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters.
You'll find me now on the anchor desk at 7:00 and 11:00. Having fun at 7:00 with John Stehlin talking about the trending stories of the day, then sitting beside Mike Ruzzi for Erie's #1 nightly newscast!
But you won't always see me just sitting behind the desk, I love the opportunity to get out and continue telling stories in the community.
I’ve been with Erie News Now for 17 years now, and I absolutely love having the opportunity as a journalist to tell the stories which matter to YOU. Please feel free to email with your story ideas.
