Bri grew up in southeastern Massachusetts, where the dynamic transition of seasons sparked her interest in weather. She traded in nor'easters for hurricanes when she left to study meteorology at the University of Miami, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in marine and atmospheric science while minoring in mathematics and communications.
Bri kicked off her television career at NBC affiliate KAMR-TV in Amarillo, Texas, as a morning Meteorologist and co-host for the show "Today in Amarillo." She also reported on consumer products in her series "Does It Work." Storm chasing was also part of her job and became an exciting hobby for Bri while on the High Plains. In her first chase she caught three tornadoes, which made network news.
Bri is an advocate of the American Heart/American Stroke organization and often volunteers as a passionate guest speaker and emcee.
When not tracking changes in the weather, Bri is most likely practicing yoga, snowboarding or relaxing at the beach.
