LUBBOCK, Texas – I grew up in the small town of Ballinger, Texas. I bled Red and Black then and continue to bleed Red and Black with the Red Raiders.
I’ve been with KLBK since 2005 and Anchor the 6, and 10 News daily on KLBK. In 2013, I helped start Lubbock’s ONLY daily Lifestyle show, Trends & Friends, and served as the Executive Producer and Host for four years and then turned over the reigns so I could focus more on News and my family.
From the time I was a baby I’ve never met a stranger, and love meeting people. I received my B.A. in Communication from Angelo State University with a background including Sales, Human Resources, Public Relations and Promotions. In 2005, I was doing Promotions, Marketing, Concerts and Events out at Buffalo Springs Lake in Lubbock and got the morning show anchor job for KAMC 28’s Good Morning Lubbock.
About a year and a half later I moved to KLBK and become co-anchor for the evening newscasts. I love being able to tell the stories of our friends and neighbors, and be a trusted source for our viewers.
Being involved in the community is where you will mostly find me on the weekends. Giving back to the community and helping others is something I love. I’ve worked with West Texas MDA, MS Foundation, Lubbock Chapter of the American Heart Association, The Susan G. Koman Foundation, Special Olympics of Texas, Literacy Lubbock, the Lubbock Alzheimer’s Association, Meals on Wheels, and CASA of the South Plains among so many others. In recent years I served on the Board of Directors for CASA, Special Olympics Board of Directors, and the Board for Literacy Lubbock. Hopefully if you have ever met me, you know I am very passionate about children in the foster care system. As a former Foster Parent, I can tell you that more caring, loving, and giving families are needed. Consider becoming a Foster parent!
Then with any leftover time I have…I enjoy movies, reading, football, hanging out with my kids, crafting things, and redecorating my house. Family time is very important to me. I have been married to my husband Wade since 2006 and we have three children, Madison, Brandon & Jaelyn, who was adopted locally. Oh and our silly sweet dog, Athena.
