Member National Weather Association and American Meteorological Society
I got involved with weather quite by accident. A friend of mine had a sailboat returning from the Lesser Antilles, which is an island group within the West Indies in the eastern Caribbean Sea bordering the Atlantic Ocean. They needed crew to help make the return passage to the Great Lakes. Being single at the time, with not much to hold me down, I joined the crew for about a month's time, and that sparked my love of sailing, ignited a keen interest in the weather, and prompted a mid-course correction that took me back to college to pursue a study of meteorology.
Having earlier earned my Bachelor of Science degree in geography, history, and art at Northern Michigan University, I then found myself immersed in a Geoscience Graduate program at the University of Texas Dallas.
I later entered broadcast news by working as an on-air meteorologist for WLUC-TV in Marquette, Michigan, then at KPNX-TV and KOY-AM, both located in Phoenix, Arizona. I arrived at WBAY-TV in 1985, and have remained your loyal servant as Chief Meteorologist ever since.
I have way too many hobbies and not nearly enough time to enjoy them. Painting, watercolors, computer graphics, photography.
You'll always find me at Elkhart Lake's Road America during the warmer months. I'm passionate about racing not just as fan, but as a competitor by actually racing at that world famous circuit.
Another big passion is travel. We've always made it a family event! Favorite places include anywhere in the U.S.A., especially around the Great Lakes and far west, and almost anywhere in Europe.
I was honored to be asked to join the American Red Cross "Dancing With The Stars" Fundraiser and Competition. Having never danced a day in my life, nobody was more shocked than I that I became a dancer! I love it. Great workout and I still take lessons and compete in International Ballroom Dancing. My everlasting thanks to my coach and partner Janet Gollnick at DanceSport Green Bay for all her help and patience.
