I’m the Emmy award winning Executive Producer of Interactive Content for KTVI and KPLR television. My team runs some of the top websites and social media in St. Louis. I write a lot of breaking news stories, produce viral videos and manage our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

I started working in television at KFXB-TV in Dubuque Iowa as a production assistant. After graduating from Webster University in St. Louis I landed a job at WRSP/WCCU In Springfield Illinois. Then, I made the move to a larger market at WSTR in Cincinnati, Ohio.

In 2006 I was able to move back to St. Louis to work at KPLR. Eventually I found my niche as the head of KPLR’s web department. Then I started working as a web producer at KTVI in 2008 after the stations entered a shared services agreement. Now, I am the head of the web department and a member of management at the stations.

Breaking news is now the focus of my attention. My team is often the first to confirm a story and alert our audience through our apps, social media and e-mail newsletters. We work with newscast producers to bridge the gap between online and on-air elements. My work during the protests following the shooting of Michael Brown led to an Emmy for breaking news.
