Profile Biography 
I originally wanted to be a teacher, but fell in love with the earth sciences class I took in college. After getting my Masters, I started my career with the National Weather Service. I have enjoyed every minute of it! The best thing about being a forecaster is that there is no such thing as a normal day. What I do from day to day is determined by the weather. Even when there is quiet weather, my job is still challenging and exciting. For example, the image is from 2012, when I gave a weather briefing to pilots at a hot air balloon festival. Another great part of my job is that I still have the opportunity to teach when I give school presentations of tours of the office.
