My passion for weather was natural for me. I always had a love for math and science (yes I was in the weather club in high school and yes I am still a huge nerd at heart). I graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. My first on-air experience was in college, PCN-TV, a local cable channel. The experience was great, but I can't help but laugh when looking back at those early days.
I started my career at WHSV TV3 Winchester in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia as the Chief Meteorologist. It was here I received the prestigious AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorology seal. Shortly after, I landed a job at WTTG-TV in Washington, D.C. I've covered all different types of weather events while working in the Mid-Atlantic. From Hurricane Sandy coming ashore, to the June 2012 Derecho, to the devastating Tornado Outbreak in 2011 and the numerous crippling East Coast blizzards. I've traded the snow for sunshine (and some fog!) and am excited to call the Bay Area my home!
I feel lucky every day. I turned my hobby into a career so it never feels like I'm working. In my down time, I enjoy cooking, running, spending time with family and traveling. I participated in my first Triathlon last year in Richmond, Virginia. My goal is to complete a full marathon very soon.

It seems like we have been hearing about one Atmospheric River event after the next this winter season. Did you know that the West Coast typically sees many of these events every winter? Meteorologist Drew Tuma explains.
