Energy & Sustainability
Five years ago I changed my graduate major from an M.S. in Operational Meteorology to an M.B.A. in Energy and Sustainability, and began my studies under the guidance of Dr. Jay Beeks, Dr. Ron Biron, and Dr. Mike Mooiman. After years of covering severe weather events, I wanted to acquire and refine my leadership skills in order to develop my message in the Geosciences and Sustainability, which is why I went back to school and our behavior towards the planet that is influencing our weather today.

I've covered notable natural disasters including: Tropical Storm Irene, the Halloween Nor’easter of 2011, Superstorm Sandy, the Blizzard of 2013, the Rim Wildfire of 2013, the record-setting Boston snowfall of 2015, Hurricanes Irma, Harvey, and Maria. My Meteorology internship was at The National Weather Service in Oxnard, CA. I've worked, researched, and studied her bum off to become an exceptional forecaster of both warm and cold-core lows. I'm fascinated by the "engines" that are hurricanes and nor'easters. During my time as a Meteorologist in New England, I earned the title of "Queen of Cold Fronts".

"The love of my life, Chloe!
Eternal thanks to the SPCA of Philadelphia, PA for rescuing her from a local fire. Not only are the people who work/volunteer there so kind and helpful, but they happen to have rescued this amazing little dog and walked her right past me on my way to Starbucks. I turned and complimented how well trained the dog was, and the volunteer told me she was up for adoption. I took a moment (a split second) and ran right in and brought her home. I'm totally in love with her sheer awesomeness." #puppylove
