I first feel in love with the weather back in elementary school.

I grew up in Texas and I loved to watch storms blow through my neighborhood. When hurricane Ike went through Houston in 2008 I stayed up all night so I could listen to the storm.

When I went to college I initially went in as a business major, but after taking one meteorology class I was hooked and changed my major. I graduated from Baylor University in 2014 with a dual degree in Earth Science and Journalism.

Before moving to Michigan, I interned at KXXV -- a news station in Waco, Texas.

I moved to Michigan the summer of 2014 and when my first winter came it was a bit of a shock! Now that I have lived here for nearly 4 years, I am more accustomed to the cold and feel ready for whatever crazy Michigan weather Mother Nature has to throw at me.

I am joining the FOX 47 News team as the Weekend Meteorologist. You can watch me on FOX 47 News at Ten on the weekends or interact with me on Facebook and Instagram.

I enjoy living in Lansing with my husband and our dog. When I am not on air you can find me in the kitchen baking, or outside running (if it’s not too cold).
