Like many Meteorologists out there, I've been fascinated by the weather for as long as I can remember. I distinctly recall Memorial Day of 1995, when an infamous tornado ripped through Great Barrington, MA. Watching The Weather Channel with warnings scrolling and Meteorologists showing active radar screens, I knew this was the job for me (who knew I'd end up there). Luckily, it all worked out! Now I spend my days trying to offer the same accurate forecasts and information to viewers across the country.
As for my education, I spent my college days at the University at Albany (SUNY Albany). In 2006, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Atmospheric Science from one of the strongest programs in the country. While I was in Albany, I had the great opportunity to work at the National Weather Service office. After all the classroom and hands-on experiences, I learned one thing: It really is harder than it looks, so don't be that person who makes weatherman jokes!
During my spare time, you'll generally find me outdoors. Biking, hiking, going for a run, or just taking a trip to the beach are all at the top of my to-do list when I'm not at work. I lived in New England my entire life up until moving to Georgia for The Weather Channel, so you'll also find me rooting for the Sox, Bruins, Patriots, and Celtics!
That brings us up to the present. I'm more than happy to deliver the forecast with a smile to viewers across America, report on a number of fascinating and impactful stories for TWC and NBC News, and just generally enjoy my job. I hope that comes across when you tune in every day! Thanks for dropping by my site, and feel free to leave comments.
