Kayleigh is from Mechanicsburg PA, which is 15 minutes west of Harrisburg. Her primary concentration is in disaster preparedness. She hopes that this project can help improve the forecasting of tornadoes and, in turn, give people more time to be prepared for severe storms. Outside of meteorology, she participates in the Millersville University Marauder Marching Band, playing the alto saxophone. She also enjoys cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Penguins, going to concerts, traveling, playing with her dog, Ginger, and spending time with her friends.

As a member of the TILTTING Project, Kayleigh will be finding target areas for chases, updating our website and social media profiles, and reviewing and analyzing datasets.
