Ever since I was a kid I remember being completely obsessed with the weather. My dad was a weather forecaster in the Air Force, and naturally I followed in his footsteps.

Ever since I was a kid I remember being completely obsessed with the weather. My dad was a weather forecaster in the Air Force, and naturally I followed in his footsteps.

In 2008 I was awarded an ROTC scholarship to study meteorology at the University of Missouri. While was there I interned at KOMU 8 in Columbia and I was on our school’s storm chase team, as well. Some of my best college memories are of just hanging out and using free Wi-Fi at small-town McDonald’s all across Kansas and northern Oklahoma. I graduated with my Commission in 2012 and was off to my first duty assignment at Shaw AFB in South Carolina. I deployed to Qatar from there and was off to South Korea after that. I ended my five-year Air Force Weather Officer career at Fort Carson in lovely Colorado Springs, Colo. I am very blessed to have had the unique opportunity of forecasting the weather all across the world during my short five years of time on active duty.

I am extremely proud of my time in the Air Force and what I learned during that time. The forecasters I worked with in the Air Force taught me everything I know about real-world weather forecasting—and about being a leader. My husband is still on active duty and is the Fight Chief for the weather shop here on Minot Air Force Base. He is from the local area too so we are lucky enough to have both our Air Force family and our actually family here with us! We have a one-year-old daughter who keeps our life interesting and who loves seeing her mommy on TV!

In our free time we enjoy going to the lake, watching football (Vikings AND Chiefs!), working out, going for long family bike rides and getting all three of our large dogs outside to play!
