About Me: Along with being a forecaster for the Cardinal Weather Service, I am also a member of the Ball State Women’s Swimming and Diving team, the storm chase team, the weather society, and Gamma Theta Upsilon (the geography department’s honors society). My favorite weather phenomena is lake-effect snow. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and watching lifetime/hallmark movies. After graduating from Ball State, I plan to continue my education by pursuing a master’s degree in Meteorology. After grad school, I hope to work within the private industry.

Major: Meteorology and Climatology; GIScience

About Me: I’ve loved weather since I was young, but what I really love is studying and creating maps. Aside from my love for geography, I love music. I took piano lessons for 10 years, drum lessons for 7 years, and was involved in my high school’s marching band for 5 years. In my free time I like to write music and play competitive ultimate frisbee. My favorite weather phenomena is lightning. I don’t know exactly what I want to do once I graduate, but I have time to explore those options.
