I’m a New York City born and raised meteorologist with a passion for creating compelling graphics, telling engaging stories, and gardening in the southeast! In June 2019 I joined WLTX in Columbia, SC as their Monday – Friday morning meteorologist. I hold a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey where I graduated with honors and was president of the Rutgers Meteorology AMS and NWA local chapter. I created this website so you can learn more about me and the stories I’ve had the pleasure of telling.
My career started as a weather producer for WPIX 11 in New York. In 2017, I moved to the Sunshine State to work for WCJB in Gainesville, FL as a meteorologist and reporter. One of my most memorable experiences in Florida was Hurricane Irma. I stayed at work for 3 days during the storm where I forecasted in the studio and reported in the field throughout the storm. Although north Florida was spared from hurricane-force winds, floodwaters were stubborn to recede. I spent months afterward sharing stories of devastation and of hope in the aftermath of Irma.
A career in TV wasn’t much of a thought for me until after Superstorm Sandy devastated New York and New Jersey in 2012. After the storm, homes were left toppled by the strong winds while storm surge claimed landmarks without leaving a trace. Sandy proved that nature’s raw power can happen anywhere and my mind was made up, I was going to spend the rest of his life preparing people when hurricanes threaten.
My absolute favorite way to spend my free time is in the dirt! I grew hundreds of tropical plants in my NYC backyard throughout high school and college. My parents are now the proud owners of some of the oldest palm trees growing outdoors in NY, and I have hundreds more on my own porch. This wasn’t enough for me though! I created a drought-tolerant courtyard for my co-workers in Florida, and I am thrilled to get my hands (and sometimes suit) dirty at WLTX in South Carolina where I am growing fruits and vegetables in Jim Gandy’s garden.
A sample of my latest work at WLTX is coming soon, but feel free to explore my old work from Florida on my “Recent On-Air Work” page!
