She worked as a student media assistant at Student Production Support while at Point Park. At Point Park she produced eight “On the Points,” a news magazine show that highlighted issues focused around Pittsburgh.

“I love behind the scenes of television. I’ve worked in a studio environment since I was 16. It’s more than just a job and storytelling to me.”
“Here at KHAS I can use my creativity for the news. It allows me to develop skills so I can understand people better, get a message out, and show that there’s still good that exists in humanity.”
In my free time I love to look back on projects that my friends and I have done through college. I enjoy supporting the arts, entertainment, football, and overall culture. I love to read, especially murder mysteries.
