Believe it or not, I grew up cowering at Mother Nature’s fury. I was terrified of thunderstorms until late elementary school! One of my teachers suggested that I read about the weather to understand it more. Weather has fascinated me ever since! I followed my love of weather to Penn State University where I took my first hacks in front of a green screen as a part of PCN’s Weather World. I embrace the challenge of forecasting each and every day and enjoy bringing the weather to the public.

When I’m not at AccuWeather, I enjoy going for long runs…I finished my first half marathon during the winter of 2013 and have plans to run many more! I am also an avid Philadelphia sports fan, especially the Phillies!
