Falicia Woody joined the First Alert Weather team in January 2019. She is originally from Atlanta, GA and has lived in six other states across the country.
Prior to joining the KXXV team, she was a meteorologist/reporter in the Upper Ohio Valley at WTRF-TV in Wheeling, WV. She gained two years worth of experience by covering numerous flooding events, winter weather, local community stories, and much more.
She graduated in May 2016 with her Bachelor's Degree in Atmospheric Sciences and her Associate's Degree in Electronic Journalism Arts from Lyndon State College (now Northern Vermont University-Lyndon Campus) in Vermont.
At Lyndon State, Falicia worked for the Vermont Center for Community Journalism (VCCJ-News 7), a student-run news station broadcasting to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. She was also a Lead Weather Forecaster for the Vermont Department of Transportation. Falicia completed two summer internships at WSB-TV in Atlanta, GA and KOB-TV in Albuquerque, NM.
Falicia was first bitten by the weather bug when she experienced a tornado warning in her area during Hurricane Ivan in 2004. Ever since then, her favorite weather phenomenon is hurricanes and even inspired her to write her senior thesis research on hurricane flooding risk communication.
In her free time, Falicia enjoys dancing, watching football, exploring local restaurants, traveling, and taking nature pictures. Feel free to say hi and give her some suggestions on what to do in Central Texas on her social media!
