Hello Delmarva! I joined WMDT in November 2013 as the Weekend Meteorologist. You can catch me with your forecast on Friday and Saturday nights at 6, 10, and 11.
I'm from Chester Springs, Pennsylvania and am excited to call Salisbury my new home. In May of 2013, I graduated with my degree in Meteorology from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. During my studies, I participated in Florida State's student produced weather show and interned at KYW in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
My interest for weather sparked as I watched The Weather Channel for hours on end as a kid. I always kept close tabs on hurricanes and severe weather, so I decided to pursue my dreams of becoming a Meteorologist. All it took was one broadcast class in college for me to decide my path in television.
In my free time I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, working out, hanging out with family and friends, and spending time at the beach. After spending four years around the beaches in Florida, I'm excited to explore the beaches of Delmarva. Feel free to say hello if you see me around! You can also like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter @Mallory_LaPella. I look forward to providing your forecast for the Delmarva Peninsula!
