Local 8 Weather Meteorologist

I LOVE working in my hometown!

I grew up in Knoxville, went to Cedar Bluff Schools and Farragut High, and on to the University of Tennessee. I really am all Vol! My husband grew up in Knoxville as well. It really means a lot to me to have family and friends around as we raise our son.

Being from here is also a bonus for my career. I’ve witnessed how the weather reacts to the terrain and elevation changes of East Tennessee. Meteorologists often refer to our region as one of the hardest to forecast, but I love the challenge.

My heart is embedded in the communities of East Tennessee. I greatly enjoy taking part in events and getting to meet the wonderful people.

When I’m not at work, I’m playing with my son and our two dogs. We adopted a husky mix and a teacup poodle. We enjoy outdoor fun, at the park, soccer field, in the mountains, and on the water. Church is a big part of our personal lives as well. We are passionate about our faith and are Youth Leaders at our church.

Personally, I love anything creative. I enjoy photography, crafts, do-it-yourself projects, and cooking. Honestly, I see something and think I can do that! That’s where the Pinspiration segment on Local 8 News This Morning was born; because I wanted to help others have some fun and often save money by doing a project for themselves.
