Breken decided that she wanted to be a journalist when she was about 10 years old. She grew up in Trinity, Alabama right down the road from the Shoals. Breken watched the news growing up and became fascinated with people’s stories.
She attended the University of North Alabama and interned with WAAY 31 from 2011-2012. After she graduated college, WAAY 31 offered Breken a job as a weekend reporter. She worked in Huntsville for about a year before becoming the Shoals Bureau reporter. The move was easy. She loves Huntsville but her heart is in the Shoals. Breken is so proud to serve the people in the Shoals.
Breken believes God called her into this business. She has always had a gift for making friends and she carries that over into her work. She knows she can make a difference and strives to do that every day. For Breken, working at WAAY 31 isn't about being on TV, it's about connecting with people, sharing their stories, and being a part of this great community. She is a hometown girl, living her dream of helping people right where she grew up. Breken also loves her amazing WAAY 31 family!
