About Us

Live Storm Chasers’s team works together to maintain a quality appearance, both in the field and through social media, with the simple goal of sharing all things weather with live storm tracking and more. Through weather blogs, breaking weather news, forecasts, and weather media, LiveStormChasers is able to provide both informative information and quality content.

The Live Storm Chasers’s team helps, serves & volunteers with at times vital information from the field & online to aid in the warning process by the NWS (National Weather Services). Through the live streams, reports, photos & videos, we are able to help visualize what the storm is doing. This in return helps both NWS Offices and those in the storm paths to be better aware of exactly what the storm is doing. 

LiveStormChasers.com is an online weather news platform that aims to promote weather content! Our team continuously works together to film & discover mother nature’s most extreme weather to promote & share it worldwide across our platform. Live Storm Chasers videos have generated millions of views online and across our platform. The content provided on our platform is provided by team members or from verified content creators’ who have agreed to our terms and conditions. For information regarding these agreements, questions, or comments, can be sent to us here!

        Reporter & Field Correspondent

        I am a Texas girl, trying to find my way back home. Currently living in Saint Louis with my Fiancé. I grew up terrified of storms, I watched all the weather movies, and shows kept getting in trouble because I would freak myself out. Eventually in college, once I was able to drive and understand the weather fully, it turned into a big passion. I also do freelancing photography on the side, because I realized, if I can shoot tornadoes, everything should come pretty easy.

        Reporter & Field Correspondent

        Currently living in Indiana with my Boyfriend Aaron & my beautiful fur babies Nader, Roscoe & Urbana. Since I was 3 years old I have been intrigued by anything and everything weather-related. A lightning bolt stuck my backyard throwing my grandma, mom and I back into our door. Where other children would be terrified, I was fascinated. By the time I was 6 years old, I got the opportunity to see my first funnel cloud over my childhood home in Yorktown, IN on July 4th, 2002. I'll never forget that green hue in the sky. From then on I knew I had to learn more about storms and especially tornadoes & lightning. Since that day I've got the opportunity to hunt down 9 tornadoes, strongest being a high end EF-2 near Le Roy, IL on December 1st, 2018. I have a deep passion for weather, with the goal of everything I do to help people better understand the power of beautiful mother nature
