LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Faith is so happy to be back in the south after joining the THV11 team in August 2022.
Faith became a journalist after witnessing the damage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. After seeing the events unfold on television, she realized how important storytelling was for those in need and vowed to do the same for her own community.
Faith attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. where she received her bachelor’s degree in English, and worked at her campus news station covering many notable events.
But beyond shooting the news, Faith can also shoot the basketball. She was a four year starter and captain on the Georgetown Women’s Basketball Team, a Parade-All American and McDonald’s All-American nominee in high school, and a two-time state champion track runner in high school.
She is also a graduate of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Faith received her Master’s degree and received honors in multiple courses at Columbia. She was also president of the Association of Black Journalists. While still in school, Faith was a sideline reporter for SportsNet New York, as well as the Big East Digital Network.
After graduating from Columbia, Faith worked as an Anchor and Reporter at WBOC-TV in Salisbury, Maryland. While there, she covered breaking news, the government shutdown, tornados that devastated her local community, NASA launches, offshore-drilling, the opioid crisis, and political scandals.
From there, Faith worked as an Evening Anchor at CBS4 in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Here, she covered breaking news and immigration heavily. This included presidential, gubernatorial and congressional visits to the U.S. and Mexico border. Faith has a heavy background in Tile 42 and the Migrant Protection Protocols program. She also covered the Texas winter freeze, and the Uvalde mass shooting.
Faith is the proud daughter of Sterlin and Lora Woodard. In her spare time, Faith enjoys spending time with family, shopping, reading, going to the beach, or listening to her favorite musical artist, Stevie Wonder.
