Emily Roehler was born in Mesa, Arizona. She grew up in Phoenix, with mom, Christine, dad, Michael, two younger brothers and an older sister. She has two dogs in Arizona, Skip and McCoy! She graduated from Mountain Pointe High School and continued her education at Western Connecticut State University, where she majored in Operational Meteorology.
While attending WCSU, Emily interned at 3TV in Phoenix, AZ with Chief Meteorologist, Royal Norman, in the summer of 2011. There she created graphics, blogged on their website and helped out in the newsroom.
In her spare time, Emily enjoys reading sci/fi books like Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and the Sookie Stackhouse Novels. She's addicted to True Blood and loves baking, cooking and doing crafts.
Emily decided to become a Meteorologist because of her love for science and weather. Although she really enjoys science, she could never imagine herself researching in a lab every day for a career. Broadcasting meteorology perfectly combined her interests, while letting her interact with people! Emily is excited to experience Nebraska's always exciting weather first hand, and use her knowledge to impact people's lives.
