I was born and raised in Massachusetts, which helped to spark my interest in weather.

Living in New England has allowed me to experience all kinds of weather from hurricanes to Nor'easters. The weather was constantly changing and I knew I had to learn all about it.

I obtained my B.S in Atmospheric Sciences and a minor in Electronic Journalism Arts from Lyndon State College (now Northern Vermont University-Lyndon). There, I worked as a student meteorologist on the school's student run news station that ran a half hour show five days a week. I also interned at WFXT-Boston where I truly learned broadcast meteorology was what I wanted to do with my life.

I enjoy anything that is outdoors, including skiing, swimming, and hiking. I am always looking for an excuse to get outdoors even if it is just to look at the clouds. When I am forced inside, I enjoy watching “The Walking Dead” and “Bates Motel.” I make sure that I never miss an episode.

I am excited to become a part of the Bismarck community and hope to become someone you trust to forecast and monitor your weather.
