I started at FOX43 in August of 1999 as the weekend meteorologist. Now you can watch me alongside Jackie De Tore, Ali Bradley, Evan Forrester, and Todd Sadowski weekday during the 4pm, 5pm and 10pm shows on FOX43.

My career started in 1997 on the eastern shore of Maryland. I worked weekends for a couple of years. I freelanced at FOX45 in Baltimore and WUSA in Washington D. C. as much as possible. I worked part-time for 12 years at FOX43 before being offered the full-time Chief Meteorologist position in October of 2012.

In my spare time, I love to golf! I also enjoy running, the gym and reading. Fall is my favorite time of the year because of football and the colorful leaves we get to view. My newest hobby is trying new craft beers. Porters and stouts are my favorites! I also enjoy wine and the many vineyards between Pennsylvania and Maryland.

While I love forecasting, I also enjoy meeting people. I participate in many charity events, golf events and community events, allowing me the opportunity to meet the many fine folks of Central PA.
