Reporter: A passionate meteorologist, she's been covering the country's biggest weather events for years. Joining our abc team two years ago. A sea of debris. It is one of hundreds, if not thousands of damaged homes and businesses. Reporter: And when she's not chasing storms, she's chasing adventure. This is lookout mountain. We're going to make it runoff mountain. Here we go. Want to go again? I could do this all day. All day.

It makes all of the difference. 15 years. I don't know how long we've been together, justin. He just doesn't know it yet. You are engaged. And when I get married -- we live in the same neighborhood. I see you out running often times when you are in town. On your play list, what's on your playlist? Right now, "roar." Still running to "roar." I know it's a little bit. I heard that song once. It's highly motivating. Here's an unfair one. Quirkiest habits? This gets me in trouble. When I brush my teeth, I squat. I do squats. I'm brushing my teeth. You're exactly right.

I want to live in them forever. And the final question, now that you're getting up way early and all week long, your ideal friday night? Oh, my gosh. I haven't had one. I've always been a weekend meteorologist. So, I think sleeping first. And second and third? Just being with my family and friends. I mean, being able to have that and not have to say, and I have to go to bed. Late night on friday nights. You want to go to bed. The ideal friday night, a couch and bed.
