Hope was born and raised in Lafayette, LA. A "Wrecking Ram" from start to finish, she graduated from Acadiana High School in 2005, where she was the editor of the school newspaper, The Rampage. Wanting to pursue a career in news, she studied Broadcasting at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

In 2009, Hope graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, a major in Mass Communication and a minor in English. She then started her journey in Broadcasting, spending the next three years as a Radio DJ for KOGM/KSLO in Opelousas (later to become Delta Media in Carencro.) After getting an unexpected call, she began her transition to TV News in June of 2012.

After watching KLFY TV-TEN since she was a child, Hope is excited to work with everyone at the station. When she is not working, she enjoys playing with her three-year old Russian Blue "kitten", Church and her two-year old Blue Pit, Asia. A avid music lover, she enjoys going to concerts, traveling, arts, and is a huge movie buff. She will forever be in love with Louisiana and can't wait to get to know more people in her community.
