Alana didn't have to travel far when she began her position as Multi-Media Meteorologist at WZZM 13 in September 2011. She was previously at TV 7&4 in Traverse City.
Although Alana will always call Wisconsin home; Michigan holds a special place in her heart. Her family owns a cottage in Arcadia where she was blessed to spend part of every summer of her life. In fact, that is one of the reasons she decided to pursue a career in Meteorology. One of her fondest memories is sitting on the porch of the cottage with her father, watching storms roll in from Lake Michigan.
Alana earned her Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Science at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee and spent two years interning at WTMJ in Milwaukee where she learned much from her mentor, John Malan. She is an awardwinning Meteorologist who has earned the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation from the American Meteorological Society.
She is thrilled to be living and working in West Michigan and couldn't be happier forecasting all four seasons in the Great Lakes State.
She loves getting out and exploring Grand Rapids but also makes trips up to Traverse City to visit her boyfriend as often as she can. Good friends and good food top her list of favorite things.
