Your ‘hello’ message to the Heart of Illinois:  Hello Heart of Illinois, I am your Chief Meteorologist! After growing up in southeastern Pennsylvania and living in the mountains of West Virginia and northeast Tennessee, and I am now happy to call the Heart of Illinois home. Ever since I was a kid I was fascinated by the weather, although it was actually my fear of thunderstorms that piqued my interest. That fear turned into a passion and eventually a degree in meteorology from Penn State.

My promise to you – I will work 110% to bring you the clearest and most accurate that I can every time and leave all of the hype behind. You can watch me weeknights at 5, 5:30 and 10. Make sure you follow me on Facebook and Twitter as well for around the clock weather updates, and of course for some fun as well.
