At 13 years old, I did a project on clouds at East Side Middle School in NYC and my love for weather was born. I dreamed about one day becoming a meteorologist like Mr G. Now, years later, I’m going to work with him! After 6 years at FOX CT, my final day is Friday May 23. I start my new job at WPIX 11 in NYC on Tuesday, May 27.
The whole experience has been bittersweet. 6 years ago if I got a job offer in NYC, I wouldn’t hesitate to go. Since then, I fell in love with Connecticut. I fell in love with the noises that all the “creatures” make at night. I fell in love with all the hiking trails, reservoirs, and other beautiful landscapes that make Connecticut so special. I fell in love with living a few miles away from a farm. I made lifelong friends and I actually enjoyed going to work every day at FOX CT (how many people can say that)?
My husband and I went back and forth with the decision for a while. But we both came to the same final conclusion. When the opportunity of a lifetime presents itself, you take it. Working in NYC has been my dream since I was a little girl. Once the final decision was made, the stress melted away and I became overwhelmingly excited!
Thank you so much to everyone who made me feel so welcome and appreciated here in Connecticut. The last six years have been the best of my life. Who knows what the next six years will bring?
