Title: Multi-Media Journalist

Before she started in north Mississippi, she gained some reporting experience as a multi-media journalist in Monroe, Louisiana.

While there she covered severe weather, politics, crime and was the main reporter for the devastating tornado that ripped through Louisiana Tech and the city of Ruston.

She is a graduate of Georgia State University. In college, she interned at WSB-TV and worked as a production assistant for Atlanta’s top radio stations.

During her free time, Sydney likes to watch TV, exercise and try new restaurants.

She is excited to connect with the wonderful city of Tupelo and share your stories.
