Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram has been obsessed with weather since she was a teenager. She earned a B.S. in Meteorology from North Carolina State University, then studied broadcasting and electronic journalism at Lyndon State College in Vermont. While in college, Chelsea worked as an operational meteorologist for V-Trans, the Vermont Department of Transportation through the Vermont Institute of Applied Meteorology. She also worked as a research meteorologist for Earthrisk Technologies.
Community outreach is very important to Chelsea. With heart disease on both sides of her family, she has worked closely with the American Heart Association promoting heart health and heart disease prevention. She’s also been very involved with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Before coming to Baltimore, Chelsea was a meteorologist in Colchester, Vermont, where she represented the state of Vermont at the Miss America Pageant.
