Being a Meteorologist was not a lifelong dream of mine, yet now I can't imagine doing anything else!

After high school, I thought about Law School so I first became a Paralegal.  While Law was interesting, I found myself wanting something a little more artistic and exciting; acting and modeling fit the bill.

Acting was really fun but not a sure way to pay the bills.  I've always had an interest in news writing. That, along with my fascination in current events led me to an education at SFSU in TV Broadcasting.

Later I attended MSSU for Meteorology. I was hooked!  It was fun and exciting. Straight out of college I began my career as a TV news anchor-reporter. 

Subsequently, I've also had positions as a traffic reporter, California lottery announcer and TV show host!

 These experiences have been amazing!  I've even been privileged to be the recipient of an Emmy Award. My job is never dull; I could be at the front lines of a major wildfire one day, reporting on a major sporting event the next day and meeting the President of the United States the next. 

Although I've never met a U.S. President... at least not yet.

Outside of work, I’m a wife and mom. My husband and children couldn't be more loving and supportive. 

As for sports, I’m a hometown fan.  I root for the A’s and Giants, the 49ers and Raiders.  I Love the Warriors and I'm a huge fan of the Earthquakes and the Sharks.  I feel so fortunate to have one of the most incredible jobs on TV.
