I was born in Richmond, Indiana and soon moved to Greenville, Ohio, where I have lived for most of my life. I would definitely say I've been obsessed with weather and have developed a passion for what I do. When I was seven years old, I saw my first tornado. I grew up terrified of storms, making me want to learn about the atmosphere and why certain phenomena occur. I have since overcome my fears and am currently a senior at Ball State University, where I broadcast the weather for Delaware, Co. through NewsLink Indiana. I will obtain my BS in Professional Meteorology and Climatology in the fall of 2013.
