Cyrena Briede, an AMS Member, is Director of Summit Operations at the Mount Washington Observatory in northern New Hampshire. Her passion for extreme weather began in Aurora, Colorado, after seeing her first tornado at age 5. She remained focused on a future career in meteorology throughout her childhood in Winchester, Virginia, and attended the University of Oklahoma and Metropolitan State University of Denver, where she graduated with a BS degree in meteorology in 2005. Ms. Briede has worked for the National Severe Storms Laboratory, and has participated in mobile radar data collection of hurricanes and severe storms. She has also worked for NASA contractors, earning the NASA Certificate of Appreciation for efforts toward aviation safety. Prior to joining the Observatory she worked for an air quality monitoring company in Alaska—a close second for the title of the world's worst weather. In her free time, Ms Briede enjoys being outdoors, running, skiing, sailing, hiking, and traveling, as well as rehabilitating and riding retired race horses. She has a thoroughbred, Red, and two dogs, Diego and Gwen.
