Jennifer has chased with Tempest since 2005. Her storm chasing career began while at Texas A&M University where she received a BS degree in meteorology. When not chasing with Tempest, she works as a forecaster at the National Weather Service in Ft. Worth. Aside from forecasting and her interest in severe weather, she spends time on outreach efforts (educating the public about weather, severe storms, and weather safety) and hydrology. Jennifer has published two papers on case studies of severe weather events. "Bow Echo and Mesovortex Evolution during the 2 May 2007 North Texas Derecho" was recently published in the EJSSM (Vol 6, No 4 at http://www.ejssm.org/ojs/index.php/ejssm/issue/view/29).
