Chrissy grew up outside of Dayton, Ohio dealing with all sorts of weather from tornados to blizzards. Her fear of tornados and thunderstorms is actually what prompted her to study the weather. The more she learned, the less scared she became and the more intrigued she was in meteorology.

Chrissy moved south for college to the University of South Carolina to get a taste of the warmer weather and beaches South Carolina has to offer. During college, she studied abroad for a semester in a small town outside of Venice, Italy. It was one of her favorite college experiences as she got to study international journalism and learn about a new culture. After graduation from USC, Chrissy enrolled in Mississippi State University’s Broadcast Meteorology Distance Learning Program, knowing that meteorology was the career for her.

During her last year of college, Chrissy began working at WIS News 10 in Columbia, South Carolina. She spent the three years working in the Midlands before picking up and moving cross-country to Big Sky country. She took a job at KPAX in Missoula, Montana where she helped to get the folks of Western Montana out the door every morning come rain, wind, sun or snow.

Chrissy was thrilled to return to the Palmetto State and the warmer weather when an opportunity arose. She has been with Storm Team 2 and the people of the Lowcountry as they weathered the Flooding of 2015, Hurricane Matthew, Hurricane Irma and the historic snowfall of 2018 as well as numerous other events.

When she's not at News 2, Chrissy loves going on school visits or popping up at community events to meet new people including you! Shes currently has the goal of running a half marathon in all 50 state before she turns 50. She loves hanging out with her husband Brook, and her two fur babbies Maggie and Ripper, cheering on the Gamecocks, or reading a book during a relaxing day at the beach but she’s always keeping up with the weather!
