Catherine Maxwell is practically a native…growing up Christiansburg, Virginia.
A passion for meteorology sparked in her at a very young age when she and her dad would watch thunderstorms together and watch the weather together on TV. It continued to grow into a passion and something she wanted to study more of.
Catherine pursued television when she had two internships at WFXR and WSLS in Roanoke. During her career at Virginia Tech, Catherine went across the country with the Hokie Storm Chasers to chase storms. This helped Catherine be able to identify severe weather scenarios and how to take action when severe weather strikes.
During her college career, Catherine was a part of Virginia Tech Television (VTTV), Hokie Weather Watch, WUVT Radio Station, Meteorology Club and a chapter sister of Alpha Delta Pi. Some of Catherine’s family is from Spanishburg, West Virginia.
She hopes she can explore some of her family roots while working here and is excited to be welcomed into your homes.
Catch Catherine on WVVA from 5-7 a.m. and on WVVA News at Noon.
