In Colorado Springs, Jessica covered wildfires, blizzards, tornadoes, and severe flooding events.

Jessica attended the University of Kansas and received a B.S. in Atmospheric Science with an emphasis in News Media Forecasting. While in school, she was the weekend meteorologist at WOW6 News, in Lawrence, Kansas. During her time in Tornado Alley, Jessica fell in love with forecasting severe weather and chased her first tornado on April 8, 2015 in Medicine Lodge, Kansas.
