Her love for weather, especially Midwest weather, started with overcoming her childhood fear of thunderstorms.

As part of a BSU class she chased storms all across the Great Plains and chased tornadoes in Eastern Colorado. She recently moved from Quincy, IL where she was the weekend meteorologist and reporter for WGEM for three years. She has forecasted and covered pretty much all types of Midwest Weather from thunderstorms and tornado outbreaks, blizzards and ice storms, to droughts and historic floods.
