From Jersey girl to southerner at heart, Colby is thrilled to make the Palmetto State her home.

As a curious child who couldn't let anything go, it's no surprise to her family that Colby fell in love with journalism and reporting as she got older.

Quickly after beginning classes at Rowan University, a small college in New Jersey, Colby enrolled to earn degrees in both Journalism and Radio/Television/Film. It was there that she was given opportunities to intern at NBC10 Philadelphia and NBC40 near the Jersey shore (the real one, if you ask those from South Jersey!)
