    I've known since third grade that I wanted to be a broadcast journalist. I'm blessed to be living out my dream right here in the nation’s capital. People often ask me what I like most about working here. My answer: "It's the incredible people I meet and the incredible stories they allow us to share."

    If I act like I'm on cloud 9, it's not just because there's weather there.  I consider it a privilege to live, work and forecast in the nation's capital.

    After spending over 15 years on mornings at FOX 5, I recently became the co-anchor of FOX 5 News at 5 pm & 10 pm!  Joining the evening shows is both an honor and a huge responsibility that I take very seriously (while still having a little fun)!

    You know that old saying, “You Can’t Go Home Again?”  Well, I am happy to say that I have proved that wrong!  I am proud to say that I have spent most of my life in the D.C. Metro Area.

    As a person who likes to ask lots of questions, I love it when people in the community quiz. "Is Wisdom Martin your real name, or did you make that up for TV?"  That seems to be a popular question in the community.

    Illy or Intelligentsia? The most important decision I can make comes just before 3 am: Which kind of coffee will I have and will it be enough to get me through the first few hours of my day-- which by the time you're tuning us in, is the first few minutes of yours!

    “Where do you get all your energy?” I know you were about to ask, so I thought I would save you the trouble! My standard answer is “strong coffee” (God Bless any and all Starbucks baristas).

My standard answer is “strong coffee” (God Bless any and all Starbucks baristas).  But that’s really only half the truth. I am innately a work hard, live large, glass is half full kind of girl.

    I grew up in Houston, Texas. I was the kid that loved to watch the weather on the news. The TV weather guys were my heros. I was lucky enough over the years to get to know many of them. Some even went from heroes to mentors.

    Did you know Wilma Pearl Mankiller was the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation? I must admit I had no idea who she was until I sat down to write my first television script as an intern at WCJB in my hometown of Gainesville, Florida.

    As a third generation born Canadian you would think that when I am forecasting the cold days and snow of winter I would have no complaints.  However, that is far from the truth.

    The question I am asked most frequently is,"How do you do it?!"  Usually this happens after I tell someone that I get up for work every day at 2 a.m.

    “Beyond my wildest dreams” is the only way I can explain what working as a reporter in news has been for me. Ever since I was a little girl, standing in my living room with a Dr. Seuss t-shirt on pretending to be like the reporters I saw on TV, I knew this was what I wanted to do.

    I can hardly believe I get paid to do this job. I mean, really, getting out all over the metro area, meeting interesting people, finding out about news as soon as it happens and telling all my TV friends. Some people call that being nosy.  I like to say I'm naturally curious.

    When I was just a kid growing up in Central Pennsylvania, I spent a lot of time asking "Why? Why? Why?" The difference between me and other kids is that I never outgrew it.

    I like to describe myself as an equal-opportunity story teller. By that I mean I don't take sides.  If a tip checks out and the story is worth telling, I'm going to work it.
