Where to watch Fox 2 News during the US Open and World Cup soccer

I’m the meteorologist for FOX 2 News Saturday and Sunday evenings. You’ll also see me on other KTVI newscasts as well as occasionally filling in on our sister station, KPLR. I also manage content for the stations’ websites, FOX2now.com and KPLR11.com.

Born and raised in north St. Louis County, I graduated from Incarnate Word Academy in 1999. In 2003, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Geography/Meteorology from Western Illinois University. While in school, I spent the summer of 2002 interning with the FOX 2 weather team.

I headed north and started my career in beautiful Anchorage, AK where I worked for three years as the weekend meteorologist for the CBS affiliate, KTVA. I was thrilled to return home to St. Louis and join FOX 2 in October 2006.

My husband, Glen, and I are huge St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues fans. We also love theatre, food trucks, and spending time with our dog, a Samoyed named Mo!

  • Arts Pop: Muny gets back to being local in the 1990s

    ST. LOUIS – Audience numbers were down at the Muny in the 1980s as the theater mostly brought in touring productions and hosted many concerts. Things changed in the 1990s as fresh management took over and the focus returned to producing musical theater locally and specifically for the Muny stage. The crowds returned and that meant money was available for some much-needed improvements to the aging Muny facility.  St. Louis Post-Dispatch theatre critic Judith Newmark continues her look back at the 100 year […]
