I am proud and excited to be part of the Local 8 News and Weather team and look forward to working and living in East Tennessee. To say I am well- traveled would be an understatement; I’ve worked in almost every corner of the country, from Alabama to Arizona and Colorado to Connecticut.
I have a passion for forecasting the weather and have the Seal of Approval from the National Weather Association and am a member of the American Meteorological Society. In 2010, I was awarded the “Certificate of Excellence” for Broadcast Meteorology by the Colorado Broadcasters Association.
I love getting out in the community. School visits are a high priority and I’ve written two children’s books about the weather, “The Adventures of Robbie the Raindrop” and “Wally the Weather Detective”. So, if you’d like to “talk weather” with me at your school, let me know.
I will also be reporting a few days a week, so I’m looking forward to seeing your community and having fun learning about the culture and history of East Tennessee and meeting as many folks as possible. If you have some stories you’d like to share with me and our viewers, I’d like to hear from you.
In my spare time I enjoy getting in my car with my Great Dane, Montana and driving around, exploring the area. So, if you see us out and about, don’t hesitate to come up and say “hello”. Meeting new people and getting to know what you care about is what I am all about.
