She received her certification in meteorology from Mississippi State University in 2010. Prior to that, she had her first taste of broadcast meteorology through a 2006 internship at Philadelphia’s WCAU.
Scott’s earliest job was at Pennsylvania’s WSEE where she did the weekend forecasts. In 2007, she also provided forecasts to a Caribbean weather channel.
She moved to Tennessee where she was the weekend meteorologist on Knoxville’s NBC affiliate, WBIR.
