I'm a proud Detroiter. Born and raised on the West Side (near Wayne State University), I graduated from Murray-Wright High School in 1989. Go Pilots!

Words cannot describe the pride I feel being able to bring you the news every day. It's been my dream since I was a child.

We all grew up watching Bill Bonds, Beverly Payne, Sonny Eliot and other reporters in this market. So, being able to do the same job as the people we've watched and loved, makes me smile with pride. If you ever see me smiling in my live reports, it's because I'm happy to be "working for you" as a proud Detroit broadcaster.

My family and I have been through LOTS of tragedy, like the death of both of my parents when I was a child. But, like most Detroiters, I'm a fighter. Like you, I've survived many stumbling blocks and turned them into stepping stones.

Being raised by my grandmother in a poor, yet pride-filled environment has made me a better reporter and anchor. I can relate to everyone, because whatever tragedies I cover, I've probably experienced it in my own life.

My journey back home has taken me to The University of Missouri, the NBC station in Columbia, Missouri; the CBS affiliate in Topeka, Kansas; the NBC affiliate in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and the NBC station in Norfolk, Virginia. It's been a ten-year journey, but I'm finally back.

It's an honor to be in your home each and every day, bringing you the news. I look forward to continuing to earn your trust.
