Cyrena’s professional accomplishments begin back in 2006 when she received a NASA certificate of appreciation for her efforts towards aviation safety while employed at a NASA contractor, AirDat. She then installed weather stations on the remote Alaska tundra for 6 years with McVehil-Monnett Associates, then came to New Hampshire as the Director of Summit Operations for the non-profit Mount Washington Observatory.

Since then, she has been climbing the ranks at Athenium Analytics, where she is the Vice President of Customer Success. She has done all this while volunteering at STEM events giving presentations and keynote speeches across New England, letting kids know she went from failing math in grade school, to obtaining a meteorology and math degree.
