Hello to my new hometown friends! I was born and raised in Monroe, Michigan which is just across the Michigan/Ohio border. Although I come from a different state, Ohio has been my stopping grounds for many years. Growing up, anytime my family and I would go shopping we would make a day of it and venture to Toledo, Ohio where all the "good" stores and restaurants were located. I also lived in Ohio while attending the University of Toledo where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Communications in Broadcast Journalism.
In order to pursue my dream of becoming a Meteorologist, I decided to continue my education at Mississippi State University where I graduated with my Meteorology Certification. To gain hands on experience in the field I interned at 13abc News in Toledo. So as you can see I am no stranger to the state!
When I am not out watching the skies for severe weather I enjoy working out, cooking, any outdoor activity, catching up on my favorite TV shows with my husband and of course shopping!!
Since Lima is my new home and I am also a reporter at the station I would love to help the community out by hearing your story ideas. E-mail me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
