Fifteen hours in a moving truck later and I'm glad to be here!

I'm Maryland born and raised and missing the mid-Atlantic everyday but I'm beyond excited to get to know the Cedar Valley and all it has to offer. Born to two military parents, I've been blessed to not move around too much (I'm terrible at packing!) I have traveled to Trinidad and Jamaica, where my parents are from. Definitely looking forward to traveling back to those countries and many more in the future.

I graduated from Penn State University with my degree in meteorology and minor in Spanish. Spanish is a beautiful language that I wish I could speak much better than I do after studying it for seven years. I was involved in the Campus Weather Service and student government whenever my nose wasn't in a weather textbook trying to decode some equation. I'm a proud Nittany Lion so football season is my favorite season - hail to the Lions!

After graduation, I spent a year in New England before my first broadcast job brought me back to Maryland. I spent over nine months at HMTV6, a cable station in Hagerstown, just two hours from home. That's where I learned some of the ropes of the TV business.

The first thing someone said to me after I moved here was "you're just in time for tornado season". We do not have that back on the east coast! I'm looking forward to learning about all different kinds of weather but also keeping everyone safe here. So bring it on, Iowa!

In my free time, I enjoy the idea of working out (sometimes not so much the action), carbs, and praying/hoping/wishing for the day that dishes wash themselves.
