Life as an NBC 5 reporter

I can not believe it has been 7 months since I started at NBC 5 in Dallas/Fort Worth. It has been adventure . . . including waking up at 2:45 AM each morning. I have been able to cover some amazing stories. It has been an adjustment moving to a large city, but it is fantastic all the things you can experience here. It has been really nice being so close to family. My sister lives in Frisco and my parents are just a few hours south in Nacogdoches. It will be interesting to see what comes next!

Hiking Mt. LeConte

I recently accomplished something I have wanted to do for a very long time. I hiked Mt. LeConte. It is the third highest peak in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The hike is more than 10 miles, so by the end of it your feet hurt, but it is so worth it. The weather was perfect . . . nice and cool. The scenery was breath taking. I highly recommend going.
