I began in my position in the Florida Climate Center in June 2016 after completing a bachelor's degree in meteorology at Northern Illinois University (2012) and a master's in meteorology at Penn State (2015). My work involves supporting the full range of operations of the Center, including fulfilling requests for climate data and information, performing research on applied-climate topics pertinent to Florida and the surrounding region, and providing climate outreach to Florida citizens. I also serve as a state coordinator for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow (CoCoRaHS) Network, which is a high-density precipitation-observation network of volunteer observers.
