Natalie’s love for weather actually flourished during her childhood years while living in a small town east of Orlando, Florida. During that time, she discovered a great interest in severe weather and hurricanes – a passion that held on tightly while growing up, even after leaving Florida and moving to Houston with her family in the late 90s. Natalie graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in Environmental Science with an Atmospheric Science concentration, as well as a minor in Geology. It wasn’t until an internship at FOX 26 in Houston that Natalie decided to pursue her passion through broadcasting. Natalie joined the KXAN First Warning Weather Team in November 2015 as the Weekend Morning Meteorologist & Reporter.
