There’s just something about Detroit TV news. I’ve always felt that way. Since I was 8 years old at least. I absolutely knew I wanted to become a broadcast journalist. I’m proof career dreams do come true.
I adore what I do. It’s a passion.
Currently on weeknights I anchor FOX 2 News at 6:30 p.m. with Roop Raj and The Edge at 11 p.m. with Huel Perkins. Both are good friends as well as colleagues, so the teamwork you see on camera is legit. The laughs are real!
I am also honored - it’s a privilege - to report stories that make a difference in our community. Stories that matter. I like to ask tough questions and give a voice to those who are struggling.
I grew up in Fenton, attended Powers Catholic High School in Flint, and graduated from Michigan State after studying journalism and political science.
After a stint as an anchor/reporter at Lansing’s CBS station my career took me to Flint and ABC12, where as fate would have it, I met my now-husband, Jason Carr (shhhh- he’s at the competition!).
From being the 5 p.m. anchor in Flint I moved to FOX 2 in 2007.
It has been an incredible journey. I have covered everything from Presidents and politics, to the most dangerous crimes and taking on those who are responsible - even helping to change state law to ban the sale of synthetic drugs.
Throughout my career, I have won 4 Emmy Awards and multiple awards from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters and Associated Press.
But what means even more to me is being able to give back to the community and teaching our daughter how important it is. I actively support several organizations including COTS Homeless Shelter, American Heart Association, Jackets For Jobs, Detroit Dog Rescue and Community Living Services that helps disabled people gain their independence.
In my free time, I love spending time with my family, friends and our two dogs Violet and Charli Tickles. I practice yoga and run. This year, I’m taking on the Detroit Free Press Marathon. During our winter, I love to snow ski. I love to travel - and look forward to a new vacation destination.
But, I always like coming home. There’s no place like Michigan. There’s no place like Detroit.
