Before joining the WTAM news team in May 2009, I spent four years at WEOL AM 930 in Elyria working as a morning show co-host and news reporter/anchor.
I am a Baldwin-Wallace College graduate with a degree in Broadcasting/Public Relations. I am a lifelong resident of Ohio and attended Magnificat High School.
In my free time I love to spend time with my husband and I love to travel. I've been to almost every state and one day hope to visit Australia. I also love watching movies and playing with my weiner dog Fidgets and my cats Snickers and Midnight.
My husband always says we live in a zoo because of the number of pets we have and while it's a joke we've added to the family. We now have a dog and two cats. Since I was a little girl I've always had a love for animals and if I saw one that was sick, injured or a stray I wanted to help. That's something I haven't grown out of and that's how we ended up with another pet.
The black kitten, which we later named Midnight, started hanging out around our house several months ago. She was very loving for a stray but looked like she hadn't had a meal in awhile. You could see her ribs sticking out. That broke my heart so I started feeding her. We did this on a regular basis and she actually started coming around the house at the same time everyday. We even set up a shelter for her outside with a blanket for when the weather was rainy.

I wanted to get her a home but figured the odds were slim since black cats don't get adopted as much as others. After thinking about it long and hard we decided to bring her in the house. Of course, we first got her fixed and all the necessary shots. It was rough at first because our dog and cat were not the most welcoming but now they're better friends. She's a joy to have around and I think she loves her new home.
