Jennifer anchors the weekend morning edition of CBS 11 News, and reports for the morning show on weekdays. She joined CBS 11 News in September 2013. For her, the move is a return home. Jennifer spent eight years of her childhood in Dallas before her family relocated to Georgia. She returned to Texas for college, graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in journalism.
News reporting has taken Jennifer around the country and even overseas. In 2012, she spent a month in London covering the Summer Olympics for various NBC affiliates. In 2009, she traveled to upstate New York for a reunion of Holocaust survivors and the American soldiers who saved their lives 65 years earlier. She produced, wrote and anchored a 30-minute documentary on the experience, and it remains her most memorable assignment.
Jennifer comes to DFW from Cleveland, where she reported for WKYC. Prior to that, Jennifer was a reporter and fill-in anchor for WTLV in Jacksonville and WLTX in Columbia. She began her career in TV news right up U.S. 75, at KXII in Sherman.
While in Cleveland, Jennifer won an Emmy Award for breaking news reporting. She is also the recipient of an Edward R. Murrow Award for writing, as well as awards from the South Carolina Associated Press and the Florida Society of Professional Journalists.
