My first reporting job was at WLTX in Columbia, South Carolina. At WLTX I won an Edward R. Murrow Award for my reporting on concussions in middle and high schools.
In 2015 I started working with First Coast News in Jacksonville, Florida. There I covered the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump, the church shooting in Charleston, the Pulse Nightclub mass shooting and Hurricane Matthew.
