Back on the Summit!

2014-03-12 18:03:22.000 – Kaitlyn O`Brien,  Weather Observer/Education Specialist


I am thrilled to be back on the summit! After the conclusion of my Internship last summer I ended up moving back to Oklahoma where I took a job as a Support Meteorologist at a company known as Weather Decision Technologies. I spent just over six months in the Sooner State working alongside some wonderful people while providing technical and meteorological support to hundreds of clients and customers. I’ve since moved back to the Northeast, and now I’m happy to say, I’m back atop the summit of Mount Washington working as a Weather Observer and Education Specialist!

As if the excitement of my first day at a new job isn’t enough, this morning when I arrived at the base of the summit to meet with our crew, I had the wonderful surprise of being unexpectedly greeted by two friends that I had met last summer during my internship. It was so great to see them again!

It’s safe to say that I am back into the swing of things, although I’m finding out very quickly that the winter is very different from the summer up here. Regardless, I’m happy to be back and looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead!
