Tresia is a multi-media journalist for 11Alive, in Atlanta.
A native "Atlien," Tresia was born in Atlanta, raised in Clayton County, and finished her school years in Fayette County. The metro-Atlanta area has always been the place she calls home.
She graduated from Sandy Creek High School, Magna Cum Laude, and she studied mass media at Valdosta State University, graduating with her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Cum Laude.
Tresia started her career as a digital content producer at KPLC in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Eventually, she started reporting for the station's digital platform. Next, she jumped to anchoring the weekend show at WITN, in Greenville, N.C. Then, she moved to the other Greenville to work as a multimedia journalist for WHNS-FOX Carolina.
She spearheaded two digital segments at her first station called "Babies 101" and "Hidden Figures in SWLA." Also, while in Upstate S.C., she launched a franchise called "Getting Answers" where she investigated the worst roads in the state. That, along with hurricane coverage, covering George Floyd protests, and visits from Vice President Kamala Harris—there isn't a story she won't dig into.
"The most important stories to me are stories that change things, whether it's a law, the price of a drug, or just a perspective," she says, "Anytime I can make a difference, I've done my job."
When she isn't on the air, you can find her taking a group fitness class, obsessing over Bruno Mars, trying a new local restaurant, or binge-watching something on the couch with her dog--or, as she calls it, her son--Prince, a poodle-shih tzu-chihuahua.
