I grew up in the Kansas City area and became fascinated by weather at a young age. Experiencing all seasons in the Midwest, I was intrigued by the constant weather changes and always had to know the forecast to plan my day. Before moving to Columbia to attend the University of Missouri, I would consistently watch local news and quickly knew I wanted to enter the industry. I am beyond grateful to give you your weekend forecast to help plan your activities.

KOMU 8 is like a family to me, and I am incredibly thankful to be part of this station and the Live Doppler 8 First Alert Weather Team.

In my free time, I love a summer day at the Lake of the Ozarks with my family, going to the gym and going to the farmers market. I am also a teaching assistant at the university for introductory meteorology. I am a dog lover and hope to add a furry friend to my home soon.
