Anna Hamelin was born and raised in Golden, Colorado, and has loved science from a very young age. In 8th grade, she decided to be a meteorologist, and began pursuing her dreams. After graduating high school at the top of her class, she went on to study meteorology at Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida. She also spent a significant portion of her young life as a competitive gymnast, and went on to perform with dance group The Silhouettes, which was even featured on America’s Got Talent.
Anna is pursuing her B.S. in Meteorology from Florida Tech and will graduate in May 2021. She is the secretary of her school’s chapter of the American Meteorological Society, and maintains a 3.85 GPA. Anna was a member of the Florida Tech cheerleading and dance teams, and a competitive participant on the cross country and track team. She was nominated for Female Athlete of the Year in 2019, and was a Distinguished Student Scholar in 2020.
When she isn’t at work or school, Anna enjoys spending time outdoors or playing with her cat Stella. She likes to run, hike, mountain bike, and explore new places. She is so excited to call the mountains of West Virginia home, and can’t wait to be an active member of the Bridgeport community.
