I always had lots questions about the weather. Why is it snowing? How do hurricanes form? But it was the tornado that rumbled through my childhood Raleigh home that really piqued my interest. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville with a degree in Atmospheric Science.
A few years later, I received the American Meteorological Society‘s Seal of Approval. With my degree, I landed my first job at a FOX station in Macon, Georgia. Tropical storms, flooding rains, tornadoes and drought were some of the weather features that provided a challenge.
Spending four years in Macon can make a North Carolina native homesick. That’s why I am glad to be back in North Carolina, working for FOX8. Away from work, I like to chase severe thunderstorms, track hurricanes and hope that one-day NC State gets a good basketball team and cheer loudly for the NC State football team.
