I was born and raised in Maine where I was able to experience weather such as ice storms, blizzards, Nor’easters, tropical storms, as well as some severe weather. When I was elementary school I enjoyed watching The Weather Channel every morning before school. I knew at that age that I wanted to grow up to become a meteorologist.

I graduated from Lyndon State College in Vermont with a B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences, and have a M.A. in Communications from Southern New Hampshire University. While pursuing my atmospheric sciences degree, I completed an internship forecasting for a private company as well as forecasting road conditions for the Vermont Agency of Transportation.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my dog as well as catching up on episodes of my favorite TV shows. Other hobbies of mine include training for races.
