Katie comes to WTVA from Collierville, Tennessee, where she lived most of her life, but she is not a Tennessee girl. Katie considers herself to be a Mississippi girl. Katie was born in Tampa, Florida, and has lived in nine different places, including Maine.
Katie says her interest in weather was sparked by Hurricane Andrew in 1992 when she and her family were affected by the storm. She says she truly became a weather nerd studying weather at Mississippi State.
Katie attended Briarcrest Christian High School in Memphis, Tennessee. She graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geosciences with a concentration in Professional and Broadcast Meteorology.
Katie is a newlywed, and when she is not doing the weather, Katie enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends; doing yoga; running; and going to the beach.
She also loves to watch her Bulldogs play. Hail State!
