About: I have a passion for
meteorology, solving problems, and helping others. As a result, I worked to
receive the Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM) designation from the American
Meteorological Society (AMS), earning this on 30 January 2017 (#731).
According to the AMS, "The CCM program is a
service for the general public by the AMS. The Society has established high
standards of technical competence, character, and experience for certified
consultants who provide meteorological advice to the public."
I currently work for the
Rapid City National Weather Service,
but I am excited to be able to provide CCM services on my own time (i.e., this is separate
from my full-time job). In addition, I am an editor for the AMS journal,
Weather and Forecasting, and a technical editor
for the National Weather Association's Journal of Operational Meteorology.
