Bowling Green, KY.
Ariella is originally from outside of Philadelphia. Before WBKO she worked at PHL17 in Philadelphia, Spectrum News NC in Raleigh, WSAV in Savannah, GA and got her start in the business at KGNS in Laredo, TX.
Ariella graduated from Lehigh University with a degree in Earth and Environmental Science and continued her meteorology education through Mississippi State University.
In her free time Ariella enjoys working out, reading, and being outside. She loves to find new hiking trails with her husband and dog (you will hear a lot about Bogey on AM Kentucky/Midday Live.)
It was in 5th grade when Ariella realized she wanted to be a Broadcast Meteorologist. A local meteorologist came to her classroom on career day and talked about what it took to do his job. Ariella already loved math & science and had a bubbly personality, so she thought it would be the perfect fit! Since she got inspired through a career day, Ariella loves to do schools talks herself. Please reach out to her if you'd like to schedule a visit to your school in the future.
Ariella describes the perfect weather day as sunshine and 75. Her favorite season is summer because she loves the beach, but she also enjoys fall scents and decor. She was a gymnast for 10 years and a high school /college cheerleader so, volume and enthusiasm are never an issue! Ariella is a self-proclaimed coffee snob and has an assortment of appliances for a variety of ways to enjoy a smooth brew. In addition to coffee pots, Ariella thinks a home can never have enough candles or throw pillows.
