Chelsea Brown joined WTVA in 2018.

Title: Meteorologist, Multi-Media Journalist

Some people stumble into a career.

In Chelsea's case, meteorology fell into her life.

An Amory native, Chelsea's childhood home was missed by a mere 5 miles by the E-F5 tornado that devastated Smithville on April 27, 2011.

A year later, a lightning strike was more accurate.

While she was at school, her house was hit by lightning, igniting a fire and damaged it beyond repair.

After that, there was no question that she wanted to dedicate her life to the weather, but she never planned on TV.

She always wanted to go into the Air Force, and meteorology was the perfect direction for a girl who was "too short and too blind" to be a pilot.

That all changed when she met the love of her life.

Chelsea is an Amory High School and ICC graduate. While at ICC, she was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society.

She is a former WTVA weather intern and is a graduate of Mississippi State University.

She and her husband live in Monroe County with their three furbabies: Hank, Thunder and BB.
