She moved to the East Coast for the first time in 2018, after spending 5 years as a meteorologist for KREM in Spokane. The Seattle/Boise native was also a weather anchor in Salinas, CA after anchoring and reporting in Casper, WY, and interning in Orange, CA and Boise, ID. She has family all over the Northwest, including in the Tri-Cities, and is very excited to be back home.
