First TV Appearance: My first TV appearance was on Denton Community Television, the channel where my college campus newscast aired in Texas.

Other TV jobs/markets/stations: I worked as a reporter and weekend anchor at Newschannel 6 in Wichita Falls, Texas

Favorite News Story: I’m choosing this story because if felt so good to get results for a family in a difficult situation.  I did a story about a family with a blind child.  They were trying to get traffic signs notifying of his disability, and the city was making it very difficult for them to do so. After the story ran, the entire community came together to get the signs purchased and posted near his house.
