Siobhan knew from a very young age that she wanted to become a journalist because of her passion of writing.
She started writing children’s stories when she was in elementary school.
She is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio and grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Siobhan graduated Summa Cum Laude from North Carolina A&T State University with her BA in Journalism and Mass Communication in 2005. There, she received the “Most Outstanding Graduate Award” in the journalism department.
Siobhan is happy to be back in the South.
Before coming to Tennessee, she worked as a reporter/ anchor at WJRT in Flint, Michigan.
Before that, she was a reporter/ fill-in anchor at WCBI in Columbus, Mississippi where she received the Mississippi Associated Press Award for her spot news coverage on a Starkville, MS fire that took the lives of nine people.
Siobhan started her career in radio at 1510 WEAL Gospel when she was in college; also known as one of the top five gospel radio stations in the country.
She also interned at WUPN in Winston Salem, NC and CBS News in New York.
Before making her way in front of the camera, Siobhan was a production assistant at WXII-TV in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Two months later, she was offered her first on-air job at WCJB in Gainesville, Florida.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading and traveling and spending time with her family.
She also has a passion for motivational speaking and mentoring youth. Outside of television, she shadows her father and spends time learning about his national leadership consulting business that he started after retiring from Proctor & Gamble where he was the operations manager.
Her father’s business is called “Nehemiah-The Leadership Company.”
Her favorite quote comes from her college professor Nagatha Tonkins. “As long as you keep God first success will be yours.”
