She has also traveled internationally, covering stories such as the hostage drama of missionaries Martin and Gracia Burnham in the Philippines, the spiritual crisis over homosexuality in the Episcopal Church, and more recently the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah in northern Israel.
She began her television career at NBC affiliate KYEL-TV in Yuma, Ariz., in 1987 after graduating from West Virginia University in 1986 with a B.S. in Journalism. She then went on to work in several television markets across the country as an anchor/reporter, including NBC affiliate WCYB-TV in Bristol, Va.; ABC affiliate WCHS-TV in Charleston, W.Va.; and NBC affiliate WTVO-TV in Rockford, Ill.
After nearly two years in Rockford, she returned to Charleston, her hometown and West Virginia’s capitol city, to co-anchor the 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts for WCHS-TV. Her position there opened the door to an opportunity to serve as press secretary and later special events coordinator to former West Virginia Gov. Cecil H. Underwood.
