Jennifer Calderon-Diaz, HRD’s Administrative Assistant, has been named NOAA’s Team Member of the Month.  As part of her job, Jennifer supports HRD’s annual Field Program by coordinating HRD research scientists for flight missions around and into the storms.  The uncertainty of when and where storms will develop often requires her to accomplish this at a moment’s notice.  During the 2013 furlough period, she was called back to duty to support missions into Tropical Storm Karen. On very short notice, she had to prepare all travel logistics manually and managed to accomplish this within four hours ensuring the success of the missions.  HRD would not be able to do the science we do without her great efforts.  Congratulations Jennifer!
