She also believes in spirituality and believes that there is a real and present correlation between science and spirituality. She finds atmospheric science pretty fascinating. She defines what we call “weather” as ever-present homeostatic tendencies of earth’s atmosphere.

Her most memorable weather experience was the historic outbreak of violent, long-tracked tornadoes in the southeast on April 27, 2011. The tornado had killed 324 people throughout 6 states. She had to report it as well as forecast upcoming major and minor tornadoes. One weird fact about her is that she dislikes brushing her teeth even if she does it twice a day.
