Britta joined the KPRC weather team in May 2014. Britta is a native Texan born in San Antonio and is thrilled to be living in Southeast Texas.

A self-proclaimed weather nut since the age of eight, Britta grew up in Colorado. After experiencing the dramatic weather patterns of the Rocky Mountain region, she headed to the east coast to study meteorology. At Stony Brook University on Long Island, she earned a B.S. in Atmospheric Science with honors. Britta is a member of the American Meteorological Society.

Britta began her professional career with the NBC Weather Plus meteorology team, forecasting and presenting the weather for NBC Weather Plus, CNBC, CNBC World, Nightly News, MSNBC and the NBC affiliate in San Diego, KNSD. She served as morning meteorologist for CNBC's morning show Squawk Box and was the primary meteorologist for CNBC's dayside programming in 2008.

Britta tackled the devastating Midwest flood season of 2008, broadcasting live from the NASDAQ in New York City's Time Square for the show Fast Money. She tracked Hurricane Gustav for CNBC as it threatened to cripple the off-shore oil rigs of Louisiana.

After her adventures with NBC Britta worked for News12 New Jersey and Long Island forecasting and storm reporting on multiple Nor'easters that slammed the east coast the winter of 2009-2010. After years of living on the east coast Britta moved to California and served as Weekend Morning Meteorologist for KCRA in Sacramento from 2010-2011.

For the past few years Britta has thrived as a stay at home mom to her two young children and supported her husband who served in the U.S. Coast Guard. She is delighted to return to work and is ready to tackle the tough weather of Houston and Southeast Texas.
