From there, she moved to Zanesville, Ohio to work at WHIZ-TV as a weather forecaster and general assignment reporter. Most recently, Katie worked at KWQC-TV6 in Davenport, Iowa as a meteorologist and weather reporter where she had lots of experience forecasting severe weather and Midwest snow events. Katie has a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and New Media Studies from the College of Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati, Ohio. She also holds a certificate in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. 

In her free time, Katie enjoys fishing, horseback riding and landscape painting (especially mountains)! She has a dog named Zane and enjoys going on weekly hikes with him all around the Pikes Peak Region. If you have a weather or outdoor adventure story idea, please send it her way!
