Always interested in the weather, I studied Broadcast Meteorology at Eastern Illinois University. While I attended school at Eastern, I worked at WEIU TV/FM PBS, as weather, news, and sports anchor, reporter, and news/sports production.

In August 2013, I was nominated and won first place in the Silver Dome Awards-Best TV Weathercast (Illinois Broadcasters Association). After getting my feet a little wet in the broadcast business, I started work as meteorologist and reporter at the NBC television station in Decatur, Illinois. Just more than one year later, I came across a much better opportunity here at WMBD TV 31 News as the morning meteorologist! My first day at WMBD was July 28, 2014, and I'm absolutely loving it! Co-anchoring with Clay Gordon always makes for a fun morning at work!

Currently, I am working on my Masters in Meteorology, online, through Mississippi State University. Born and raised in Central Illinois, I am proud to continue serving the Central Illinois public!

Thank you for inviting me into your homes every morning!
