·         EXPERIENCE AS A PROFESSIONAL FORECASTER
As a degreed meteorologist, I have the forecasting skills and the presentation abilities to provide viewers with dependable, accurate weather coverage in a comfortable manner.  I’m not afraid to work hard and am committed to bringing up to the second coverage of weather events to viewers.

·         A METEOROLOGIST WITH LEADERSHIP SKILLS TO SUCCEED
I know what it takes to bring a team together and provide consistent, sensible weather coverage in a competitive market.  Television is the ultimate team sport.  Whether leading the charge or covering the background tasks, I am a relentless team player that will do whatever it takes to get the job done.

·         AN INNOVATIVE COMPUTER EXPERT
In the weather business, it is critical to fully understand the technology at your hands.  If you can’t get the most out of your computers, you can’t bring the best possible product to your viewers.  I love the challenge of finding new and exciting ways to present weather information to viewers.  I also have considerable web design experience.

·        A COMMITMENT TO MY CO-WORKERS AND MY COMMUNITY
I have a steadfast commitment to being involved in my community as a professional and a citizen.  I visit with numerous schools and civic organizations every year. I am active in my church and have helped organizations such as the the American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, the United Way, and the America Reads program.
