This is my first job! But during college I interned in Boston at WCVB, in New York at ABC News and in Binghamton, NY at WBNG.

Anything I did while trekking through the Syracuse snow was challenging. But I?ll be ready for winter here in Vermont!

As a Boston native I will always support the Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins! Even more importantly?the Syracuse Orange!
