I have three goals at the start of each day: learn something new, discover a new way to look at something and put myself in somebody else's shoes. That's why I'm thrilled to be reporting for NEWSCHANNEL 13.

Before moving to Colorado Springs, I reported for the Medill News Service in Washington D.C. Enterprising stories with a focus on education, I talked to students, educators and lawmakers. The job also gave me a chance to work in Chicago, IL where I was a health reporter. Health news is one of my passions and I'm always interested in new technologies and medical mysteries.

My first jump into broadcast news started in the small town of Quincy, IL where I worked for WGEM. After experiencing firsthand how local news affects a community, I never turned back...I will forever be a news nerd.

I'm a proud graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. I completed my B.S.J. and M.S.J. in August of 2008, majoring in journalism with a minor in political science. I was honored as one of UWire's Top 100 College Journalists and anchored a national news show for OSTN.

Outside of the news world, I love music. I play the piano, flute and sing. I also love traveling and foreign languages. I've explored Europe and Asia. I speak Korean and a little French.

As a Colorado native, I'm so happy to be back home with family, friends and close to the Rocky Mountains. I'm always excited to meet new people and hear your stories.
