Eileen has only lived on the east and west coasts and was looking to try something new, so she moved to Kentucky. Before arriving at Spectrum News 1, Eileen traveled extensively around the world visiting more than 35 countries.

She approaches every story differently because each one is unique. Eileen likes to bring out the passion people have for what they do and tries to catch them in candid moments while telling their stories. 

When she's not reporting, you might catch her at Shiraz Mediterranean Grill in the Highlands. It was one of the first restaurants she tried when she moved to Kentucky and loved the food, and of course, the owner's story of how his parents came from Iran.

In addition to traveling, Eileen enjoys spending time with family, walking or playing basketball in Cherokee park and dancing, especially salsa.
