About: I have a passion for
meteorology, solving problems, and helping others. As a result, I worked to
receive my Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM) designation from the American
Meteorological Society (AMS), aquiring 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 also am a
member of the National Council of Industrial Meteorologists (NCIM), which is
an Association of Certified Meteorologists.
In addition to client services, I continually
sharpen and upgrade my skills and experience through weather forecasting and decision support, as well as
serving as an editor for the AMS journal, Weather and Forecasting, and a technical editor
for the National Weather Association's Journal of Operational Meteorology.
