She graduated from Northland College in Ashland, WI in May of 2017 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Meteorology, along with a minor in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Environmental Studies.
During her college years, Sarah was very active in her college’s Weather Club and participated in the Weather Challenge for three years to gain experience in forecasting. In 2015, Sarah led a student forecasting team in Mesoscale Meteorology Storm Chasing to help boost her knowledge of severe storm prediction. She also spent considerable time in a Broadcast Practicum at our sister station KBJR-TV in Duluth. During the fall of 2016, Sarah was a GIS intern with the National Park Service in Ashland.
Sarah is a member of the American Meteorological Society and has had SKYWARN Certified Storm Spotter Training.
Sarah grew up in the small town of Kenyon, so being a native of southeastern Minnesota, she was excited to find a job so close to home in her chosen career path. Sarah says she has had a passion and fascination for weather ever since elementary school when she read a book about clouds. Growing up, Sarah always liked to track hurricanes in the tropics and stay up to date on the latest severe weather.
In her spare time, Sarah loves to spend time with her cats, family and friends from the area or cozy up with a good book.
