Objective I am originally from Clinton, SC and am currently a Meteorologist at WJAX-TV/WFOX-TV CBS 47 / Fox 30 in Jacksonville, FL (DMA 48). Before graduating from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology, I obtained both television and radio experience as an intern in Charlotte, N.C. at WCCB-TV, WCNC-TV, and the Carolina Panthers Radio Network. Previously, I was a meteorologist at WACH-TV in Columbia, S.C. I instantly developed a love for broadcasting the moment I stepped in the studio. I am a dedicated hard worker with initiative and passion for the field as well as possess a very creative nature in the studio and while on air.
