What was your most memorable weather event?
My most memorable weather event occurred well before I started my career…in 1996! I was just 5 years old on a family vacation at the Jersey shore when Hurricane Bertha came barrelling through. I’ll never forget the flood waters that closed the streets, downed trees and powerlines, and the eerie feeling that followed the storm. It’s what sparked my interest in meteorology!
What is your favourite and least favourite type of weather?
My favorite type of weather is snow! Specifically thundersnow. My least favorite type of weather is summer convection. It’s so unpredictable and can easily hit or miss.
If you weren’t a meteorologist what would you most like to be?
I would love to own a bakery. I love to bake! I would also like to run a boutique fitness studio. I love working out – It’s a good combination!
From a purely meteorological point of view, where would you most like to live?
New England! You cannot beat the weather extremes and seasons.
