Heather joined the Eyewitness News team in February 2013, but she's been telling the major stories impacting North Carolina for several years. She comes to Raleigh-Durham from Charlotte where she worked as the primary anchor for statewide cable news network, News 14 Carolina. There, Heather covered historical events including the 2012 Democratic National Convention and the March on Wall Street South. She also co-hosted a live, Emmy-winning broadcast of the 2012 Miss North Carolina pageant. Heather is the recipient of several Associated Press awards and was most recently recognized by the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas for her health reporting.
She began her career in television at WJHG, the NBC affiliate in Panama City, Florida where she shot, produced and edited her own stories. She also served as the station's weekend anchor.
Heather hails from Knoxville where she graduated from the University of Tennessee. Go Vols!
She's a VOLunteer at heart and a fierce champion for community service. Heather spends much of her time out of the studio furthering the causes of Down Syndrome research and education. She has also worked with several North Carolina organizations including Go Red for Women, Habitat for Humanity and the Salvation Army.
Heather is thrilled to be in the Tar Heel State. If you see her out, say hello!
