Getting my degree in meteorology from the University of Oklahoma was my greatest achievement.
I received my American Meteorological Society Seal of Approval in 1994.
I won the Regional Emmy Award for severe weather coverage in Oklahoma City. I was part of a great team!
I was recognized by the Tulsa National Weather Service and the Northeastern Oklahoma Chapter of the American Meteorological Society for outstanding service and dedication in the Tulsa and surrounding areas. Definitely a highlight in my career!
When you get your name on a plaque next to Mike Morgan and Marc Dillard it means something. We won first place for our coverage of the Elk City, Oklahoma Tornado May 16, 2017. It's an honor to work with the KFOR staff and the 4Warn Storm Team. We have a great team and when recognized for what we do everyone is a winner. All in the KFOR Newsroom deserve their names on this award.
I reported live as I chased an EF 5 tornado that tracked through Moore, Oklahoma May 20, 2013. My live coverage was broadcast on the FOX News Channel and was the lead on the O’Reilly Factor!
As far as I know there has only been one television forecast contest for all TV stations in Oklahoma and I finished in first place! The Oklahoma Weather Network, which is a website run by a degreed meteorologist, put on the first ever television weather forecast contest including all Oklahoma TV stations as well as the National Weather Service Offices in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Every night at 11pm the Oklahoma Weather Network grabbed the 7-day forecast from all Oklahoma TV stations websites and the NWS offices and scored them against each other and the actual recorded weather the next day. I did the evening weather for FOX 25 OKC and out predicted the entire state of Oklahoma including all TV stations in Oklahoma City and Tulsa as well as the National Weather Service for the entire Winter!
Captured rare Thunder Snow event New Years Eve 2020-2021 Oklahoma City while doing a live weather hit on my FB page. Very exciting for me! The video made NBC Nightly News.
