More About Me
The best part about being a Penn Stater is being part of the worldwide Penn State family.
Immediately after I graduated, I started working as a meteorologist/forecaster at AccuWeather, Inc. right in State College.
Here's what I currently do in a nutshell: Climate Central researches and reports on the science and impacts of climate change. Climate matters, the program I direct, partners with broadcast meteorologists to connect local weather with the bigger climate change picture.
For any student planning to graduate soon, I offer this: be lifelong learners in whatever you do, wherever you go.
One of my fondest Penn State memories is when I met my husband when I was back visiting during a football weekend (Penn State vs. Nebraska, 2002).
In my career, I strive to make the world a better place by keeping people safe from and prepared for the harmful impacts of extreme weather and climate change.
I love to plug in my earphones and faithfully listen to the Roots and U2.
During some of my weekends, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends—preferably outside if the weather cooperates.
I live my life by one of Ghandi's famous quotes: "Be the change you want to see in the world."
