Before returning to Richmond, Jasmine was a multimedia journalist and weekend anchor for WECT News in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Jasmine has covered several breaking news events in Central Virginia, such as the chaos in Charlottesville in August 2017, and the deadly tornadoes caused by Hurricane Florence in September 2018.

She frequently hosts NBC 12’s Digital Dialogues, which are round table community conversations streamed exclusively on the NBC 12 News App, Amazon Fire, Roku and the NBC 12 Facebook page.

"What people need to know is they don't have to move. Based on what the judge ruled today, they don't have to move. I think that is the key message we need to get out," said Central Virginia Legal Aid Society Litigation Director Marty Wegbreit on March 23rd after he successfully persuaded a judge to grant the Richmond sheriff authority to not carry out evictions during the COVID-19 outbreak.
