Hello! I am Elise and am from Wadsworth, Ohio. I am also a 2013 graduate of Ohio University with a degree in Meteorology. I started preparing for a career in broadcast meteorology by acquiring summer internships in Cleveland, Ohio in 2011 and 2012. In 2011, I interned at WEWS and in 2012 at WKYC. I also forecasted for WOUB in Athens Ohio for 3 years and for Scalia Laboratory for Atmospheric Analysis for 4 years while at OU. I have been a member of the American Meteorological Society since 2009 and a member of the National Weather Association since 2010. While at OU, I was a student officer for the local student chapter of the AMS for all 4 years of my college career. I started my career with Your Hometown Stations weather team in late September 2013 and am very excited to be working with everyone here! I love to be outside and although I am not a great photographer I love to take plenty of weather pictures! Aside from the weather, my other interests include playing volleyball, cooking/baking, watching movies and Jeopardy, and spending time with my family and friends.
If you have a story idea, I would be glad to hear from you. I can be reached at 419-228-5909, or if you have an interesting weather picture email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
