I am a 2010 graduate of the LWHS T.V. Production program. During my time here, I won honorable mention in the 2009 C-SPAN StudentCam competition, numerous FAME trophies both on the local and state levels, a bronze ADDY in advertising, and the top prize at the Marion County Public Library Teen C.R.E.A.T.E. Media Festival. After graduation, I attended Santa Fe College in Gainesville for my Associate of Arts in Journalism and was an Associate Producer at WCJB-TV20 for two of the four years I lived there. I then moved to Pensacola, Florida where I attended the University of West Florida and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Journalism with a focus in Electronic Media. In addition, I served as a teacher’s assistant for all of UWF’s video productions classes.
While in high school, I was an active member of student government, FFA, Drama Club, Yearbook, Graphics Art Club and Key Club. In college, I was an active member in the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, Student Government, Our Campus Newspaper, Circle K International and several other organizations. I have been active in Relay for Life, Light-up the Night, Dance Marathon and have worked with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospitals, The Ronald McDonald House Charities, The Fishers House, The Partnership for Better Families, and Several Veterans Organizations.
I am really excited to return home to Ocala to teach students in the program that began my journey in television; it’s my hope that I can help drive your passion to learn more about the digital video world.
