Weather has always been a passion. I first gave the forecast with a chalkboard when I was 5. Now, you can catch me each weekday on Eyewitness News This Morning starting at 4:30 and again at noon.

I graduated from Villanova University with a degree in Geography. I teamed up with my professor and published two studies on hurricanes and their impact on increased precipitation in the Eastern United States. I obtained a degree in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. I also hold a certificate in Emergency Management from Florida State University.

My career started at the ABC affiliate in Salisbury, Maryland. Next, I was able to enjoy the mountains at the ABC affiliate in Charleston, West Virginia. I am a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM Seal Holder) through the American Meteorological Society and also have my National Weather Association Seal of Approval for weathercasting.
