Hi! Thanks for clicking on my bio. I'm thrilled to be part of the FOX 13 family. You can catch my forecasts Saturdays and Sundays from 7-10 a.m. on FOX 13+. Monday to Wednesday mornings, you'll see me doing the weather with fellow meteorologist Brian MacMillan (he's the nicest guy you'll ever meet!).

It's a dream working in my hometown and doing what I love. I grew up in Bellevue and am a WSU grad (Go Cougs!). Before joining the FOX 13 team, I worked as a meteorologist and reporter for Seattle's ABC affiliate for three years. I loved focusing on climate and environmental stories, including pieces about our beloved Southern Resident killer whales, salmon, and local climate change issues. It's also been a privilege covering big weather events like Seattle's "snowpocalypse" in February of 2019 and our horrible triple-digit heat this last summer. I took pride in contributing to important COVID-19 stories throughout the pandemic, too. I always strove to highlight the scientific aspects of coronavirus -- yet tell the story with a "human" element by introducing you to front-line workers, COVID-19 survivors, and local businesses that were impacted.

Previously I worked as a morning meteorologist in Colorado Springs for nearly five years. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my time there. Even though my alarm went off every day at 2 a.m., it was a thrill forecasting for such complex terrain. The Rockies certainly didn't make my job easy as a meteorologist (that's an understatement), but tracking both major snowstorms and severe weather (including a threat for tornadoes) on the same day was the best way to learn about the atmosphere. In 2018, I completed meteorology school online through Mississippi State University. While I was in Colorado, I also did forecasts and newscasts for the local Telemundo station.

I started my career as a reporter and weather anchor in Tri-Cities, Washington. I have such a special place in my heart for all of Eastern Washington, too. I've loved taking weekend trips to places like Chelan, Leavenworth, and Winthrop.

In my spare time, I love being outside. On my weekends, you can find me at a local Seattle park or a trailhead in the Cascades. I'm also so thankful to live near family.

I'd love to get to know you. Don't hesitate to reach out to me on social media or via e-mail. I love sharing people's weather photos and videos.

Thanks for choosing FOX 13!
