Makayla recently graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a B. S. in Meteorology. She is a Colorado native. Before coming to KLTV Makayla interned at KKTV in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and WeatherNation in Parker, Colorado. While in college Makayla had several interesting research opportunities. She went to Rocky Mountain National Park and investigated avalanche probability on the mountainsides by digging snow pits to learn more about the deepest snow. She also traveled to Ecuador in South America to research flood management in a third world county. Outside of weather Makayla enjoys running, swimming, and playing guitar. Her favorite football team is the Denver Broncos and her favorite TV show is "The Office." She loves weather questions so don't be afraid to ask.
