After competing in the Olympics, Margaux took a year off to focus on getting internships, and field experience. Her first internship was with WFSB Ch 3 in sports, and from there she was hired as a side line reporter for CPTV sports.

After her year off, Margaux earned her Masters Degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Southern California in May of 2015. She graduated with a 3.9 GPA.

She started on day one of Wake Up West Texas, which aired on KIDY Fox San Angelo, and KXVA Fox 15 Abilene in Texas. She first started as a host of a breaking/trending news desk, and was later promoted to anchor/producer.

Margaux went on to stay in West Texas for 1.5 years. Then, in April of 2017, she was hired as a morning reporter for FOX61 News back in her home state of Connecticut.

Margaux is excited to be living, and working in the state she has long called home. When she’s not working you can find her playing with her beloved cockapoo, catching up with friends and family, working out, and enjoying Connecticut’s distinct four seasons!
