Growing up in Kansas City, Missouri I have always been surrounded by all types of weather that mother nature can dish out. From tornadoes to winter storms, I have just about seen it all.

Growing up in Kansas City, Missouri I have always been surrounded by all types of weather that mother nature can dish out. From tornadoes to winter storms, I have just about seen it all.

As a kid, I was terrified of storms after the 2003 tornado outbreak tore across the Kansas City metropolitan area, taking out a few homes in the neighborhood next to mine. One rumble of thunder and I would make a run for the basement. I found comfort watching the local meteorologists’ coverage of storms from there on out, eventually gaining an interest in the phenomena. I am a strong believer in the power of knowledge, and that is something that I am so excited to give back to my community!

I graduated from the University of Missouri in May 2019 with a degree in Atmospheric Science. Before coming to WKYT I was a weekend weathercaster at KOMU 8 News in Columbia, Missouri. While I have lived in Missouri my whole life through childhood and college, I am excited to be in Kentucky starting my next adventure. I am already falling in love with the Bluegrass State.

Outside of weather and reporting, I am very passionate about sports. I am a HUGE Kansas City Chiefs fan, and as a true Kansas Citian, I love the Royals as well. While my loyalties to Mizzou remain strong, I will still cheer on the Wildcats alongside the Big Blue Nation (as long as the teams are not playing each other, of course!). I am a big fan of running, lifting and dogs as well.

If you see me out and about, feel free to say hi!
