After working in both the eastern and western ends of Texas, I split the difference and came to Austin. I am from Miami, Florida and received my Bachelor's of Science degree in Meteorology from Florida State University in 2000. (By the way, UT Head Football Coach Mack Brown is also an FSU Seminole.) In addition to my undergraduate work at Florida State, I also spent some time in the graduate meteorology program there.
My first on-air meteorologist job was at Florida's News Channel and the MBC Network in Tallahassee. In 2004 I moved to KBTV in Beaumont, Texas, and during my four-year stint there, Hurricanes Rita and Humberto paid me a visit. While in Beaumont I received the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation by the American Meteorological Society, and in 2008 I was awarded Best Weather Presentation by the Press Club of Southeast Texas. In the summer of 2008 I headed to the other end of Interstate 10 in Texas to work at KVIA in El Paso, covering monsoonal rains and dust storms.
I came to Austin in August of 2010 and am excited to be a part of the KVUE Storm Team. In my spare time I enjoy playing the piano and violin, lifting weights, watching football on television, studying foreign languages, and graphic arts. Thanks for watching KVUE!
