After earning my degree in Broadcast Television Production from Daytona State College, where I studied television writing, directing, and producing, I entered into the industry to continue my passion for writing entertaining, empowering, and educational pieces. During my time at the WDSCTV television station, work that I wrote, directed, and produced, aired on televisions across central Florida, in addition to my primary job functions, I have been recognized by producers for my commitment to being organized and individualistic. When I’m not glued to words on a laptop, you can find me glued to words on a page of a good mystery novel.
