Meet our Role Models

I’m passionate about all things weather and love the connection with the audience. Weather is part of our every day, knowing what’s going to happen and conveying that to the audience is the best part! And I get to do fun things.
I’ve wanted to be a meteorologist since I was 5 years old.
It’s important that we break the mold. Science is typically male-dominated but it doesn’t mean it should stay that way. There are lots of opportunities for everyone in STEM and skilled trades and resources like this one are a great way to get the word out there. Knowledge and representation are key.
My day varies depending on the weather or on location. I forecast throughout the day, provide radio hits to on the go, post on social media and then live at 6 pm.
I watched a number of TV meteorologists growing up and always wanted to be like them. I even contacted one station for a tour and shadow day to make sure this was something I really wanted to do.
I love being outdoors. Hiking, camping, canoeing, and fishing is what I enjoy doing.
Most meteorologists find their passion for weather at an early age. It’s a science-heavy profession so make sure you take lots of science courses in high school.
