Brigit joined the ABC 17 news team in August 2014 as a production assistant. After two years of working behind the camera, Brigit joined the weather team in August 2016 as the weekend evening meteorologist. Now, you can join Brigit every weekday morning from 5-7 AM. She's originally from Omaha, Nebraska.

Brigit is recent graduate of Mizzou, obtaining a bachelor's degree in atmospheric science. Along with studying at Mizzou, Brigit was able to study abroad at the University of Reading in England, which is known worldwide for it's top ranked meteorology program. 

Being from Nebraska, Brigit has dealt with severe weather her entire life. At a young age, she remembers her mom telling her about the 1975 tornado that hit Omaha and destroyed the street of their family business. Ever since then, she wanted to pursue a career in meteorology.

When Brigit is not forecasting she loves to spend time with friends, cook, visit family in Omaha, travel, and take her dog Bentley on walks.
