I grew up in St. Louis and spent most of my childhood outside which meant that I saw all kinds of weather. My love for broadcast meteorology started in kindergarten when I would give "forecasts" to my class, and ever since then I've known weather would be something important to me.
I'm studying atmospheric science at the University of Missouri, where I'm set to graduate in 2022. I'm the proud mom (owner) of a puppy, Petra. Being a puppy mom means I spend a lot of my time going for walks and playing fetch with Petra, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I also enjoy hiking and spending time with friends and family ... when I'm not studying of course.
