The future bride is a 2008 graduate of St. Clairsville High School. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Strategic Communication from The Ohio State University in 2011, and upon graduation, was signed on as the Belmont County reporter for WTOV9. She served as the NEWS9 Sunrise Anchor for three years while studying for a master’s degree in Organizational Communication, which she completed in 2015. The bride-to-be returned to her position as a reporter and fill-in anchor in 2016.

The future groom is a 2003 graduate of Buckeye Trail High School and a 2005 graduate of the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy. He began his law enforcement career at the Belmont County Sheriff’s Office the same year. The betrothed also served as an officer with the Barnesville Police Department and former Cambridge State Hospital before rejoining Belmont County deputies in 2011, where he and his four-pawed partner, K9 Hyra, are assigned to drug interdiction and are members of the Belmont County Major Crimes Unit and the Special Operations Branch of the office.

A May wedding is planned.
