    I joined the FOX 5 team in September of 2012 as the start of a budding news and weather team. Weather has been my passion from the age of 5 when I witnessed a tornado touch down not far from my home in Colorado Springs. Since then, I have always been fascinated with forecasting, weather patterns, and especially extreme weather, and understanding why it happens.

    I was born and raised here in Springfield, Missouri and have always loved the Ozarks. In 2014 I graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Missouri State University, and started with Fox 5 KRBK as an overnight Master Control Operator. It wasn’t long before I was able to transition into the News Department, where I have been working full-time since 2015.
