Robbie Hood

Robbie is a hurricane huntress-aka weather scientist-for NASA. Her main job is working with information about the birth of hurricanes. She's even flown over-and even through-hurricanes in aircrafts to collect data. Now that's job devotion! Robbie's work helps with hurricane prediction, so people on land can prepare for the storm. She says studying hurricanes is like a big jig-saw puzzle, which the entire science community works together to solve.
