I am honored to be able to share the news in the same community where I was raised.
My television career actually started at KPLC when I was 16. I landed a spot as a teen reporter and never looked back!
I have a degree in mass communications from Louisiana State University. At LSU, I had the opportunity to work for the campus television station, TigerTV and also intern at WBRZ in Baton Rouge, The New York Times, CBS News, and with organizations in Washington, D.C. and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
After graduating in 2006, I accepted my first on-air job at KPLC as a reporter. Over the next few years, I moved to weekend anchor and eventually to morning anchor/health reporter. I then worked as a weekend anchor/evening reporter for two years at KCEN in Waco, Texas before deciding to put roots back down at home. In 2012, I came back to KPLC and rejoined the 7News Sunrise team as well as my role as health reporter.
My passion is telling stories that can spark positive change in a community. I grew up just north of Lake Charles, in Dry Creek, and can truly say there is no better career for me than sharing the news with communities throughout Southwest Louisiana.
I have been recognized by the Louisiana Associated Press with five television awards: three for investigative reporting and two for in-depth reporting. The Louisiana State Medical Society has also given me a meritorious reporting award for an in-depth series on rare diseases.
When I'm not running around the newsroom, you might see me running around the lakefront! I love exercising, spending time with my family, being a part of Water's Edge Community Gathering, Trinity Baptist Church and serving with local volunteer groups.
I did nab the ultimate Texas souvenir before heading back to Louisiana…I married an Aggie, Matt Felder, in May 2012! We have two dogs, Chase, a chocolate Labrador - and Cayenne, a Miniature Pinscher that stole my heart during a Sunrise Pet Shop segment.
