About me:  I graduated in December of 2013 with a degree in atmospheric science and minors in journalism as well as mathematics.  Throughout the past year, I've discovered my passion for studying science of the earth's atmosphere and communicating scientific information to the public.  I hope to pursue a graduate degree in atmospheric science and climatology next year.  I was born and raised in Kansas, where tumultuous weather sparked my interest in atmospheric science.
