Meteorologist at ABC7
Since she was a little girl enamored with The Wizard of Oz, Cheryl Scott has been fascinated with the science behind forecasting the weather. Now one of Chicago’s favorite meteorologists, she saw how impactful her work could be during her coverage of a rash of tornadoes threatening the safety of thousands. “That was the day I realized this is more than just a job; this is a platform to keep people safe and help them when they need it most,” Scott says. While her work doesn’t leave much spare time, the Brown University graduate and former collegiate runner keeps fit with hot yoga, spinning classes and long walks with her beagle, Lola. “Yoga and meditation are playing a bigger part in my life—those things can really help you out physically, but also mentally,” she says. And having the perfect products and workout spots takes a lot off her mind.
