As a child, Christy was terrified of thunderstorms. This led her to frequently watch the local news and weather coverage. Her fear turned into a fascination with weather, which helped her understand weather patterns in her hometown of Butler, Pa.
Christy pursued her passion at The Pennsylvania State University, where she earned her B.S. in Meteorology. While at Penn State, she was an active member of the Campus Weather Service, which is the largest student-run weather service in the U.S. She produced forecasts for different parts of Pennsylvania and was a communications shift manager for The Campus Weather Service. As a shift manager, she helped other students hone their skills in front of the green screen.
She also worked as a meteorologist for CNET on the show "Weather or Not."
Before working at WTAJ, she was in Hagerstown, MD at HMTV6 as the morning meteorologist.
