Meteorologist for KCCI

Age: 39 

How you would describe your style: Pretty classic. I love that transition into fall when you can layer things and wear a crewneck sweater and a jacket with a pair of khakis or denim.

The part of your style you’re known for: My layers. I like to dress up for a night on the town with a sweater over a collared shirt and a tie.

The piece of clothing you couldn’t live without: A hoodie and a ball cap.

Your fashion icon: Actor Ryan Reynolds. The guy can pull off pretty much anything.

Any fashion regrets? A pair of crocs that I’ve had for years.

Where you shop locally: Typically J. Crew, Express and Badowers, but I love to hit up secondhand stores and little boutiques where I can mix and match.

Hobbies or passions: Cooking, especially Italian food, and entertaining. I love throwing holiday and dinner parties. I’m passionate about animals and volunteer at a local animal shelter, Animal Lifeline of Iowa. I also love film.

Picky about: Time. It’s precious and when it’s gone, it’s gone. Do everything on your bucket list and have no regrets. Make every minute count.

Not so much: Restaurants. I love them all, from the mom-and-pop places to chains.
