I like to relax with piles of fashion and beauty magazines or catching up on the latest celebrity news and gossip over a strong cup of coffee. I am a Zumba enthusiast and I love to work out, especially outside. I travel as much as I can-- whether it's back to Lexington to visit my friends or a trip to Louisville to spend time with my family or just a spur of the moment weekend trip with my boyfriend exploring the South. I try to go home to New Jersey every chance I get - nothing compares to the REAL Jersey Shore, pizza made on the East Coast and authentic Italian food. I love to shop, dance and go out, but I can also appreciate a night of watching my favorite shows on the DVR on my extremely comfortable couch.
The people I meet on stories is the reason I love local news. Everyone has a different story to tell and I enjoy being the person to help broadcast their side of things. When the stories and news are always changing, so is my job, so it never gets old.
