Heather Brinkmann

Heather Brinkmann is a Digital Producer and Meteorologist for WFRV. Before coming to Northeast Wisconsin, Heather worked at a television station in Waco, Texas, where she worked on the website and also did the weather. 

Before forecasting the weather on-air, Heather was a private forecaster for a company in the Chicago area. There, she forecasted for major companies across the entire U.S., even for some right here in Northeast Wisconsin. 

Heather is also an avid storm chaser. "I love getting out there and experiencing Mother Nature," Heather said. "Nothing feels better than to see your forecast verified with a tornado spinning right in front of you!" Heather got her strong passion of weather when she was little. "I grew up watching Tom Skilling and he was my idol. I wanted to do exactly what he did everyday!"

She is from Aurora, Illinois (Wayne's World!), and graduated college from Northern Illinois University. Heather received her degree in Meteorology, as well as Journalism.

Heather loves watching sports, playing sports, cooking and spending time with her husband, Patrick, and her dogs, Dirk and Halen. If you ever see her out and about, make sure to stop and say hello!
