Katrina Voss

Katrina Voss worked as a bilingual broadcast meteorologist for The Weather Channel Latin America and AccuWeather[1] and holds the AMS Seal.[2] She is known for being a regular columnist for the secular humanist journal Free Inquiry magazine.[3] Her work has also appeared in New Scientist,[4] The Humanist,[5] and Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society where she wrote about sharing a name with a devastating hurricane.[6] After Hurricane Katrina's impact in 2005, her comments on hurricane naming and its psychological consequences were cited in the media.[7] [8] [9] [10] She has also questioned the merits of the American Meteorological Society's phasing out of their Seal of Approval and replacement with the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) Seal.[11]

In an August 2009 issue of New Scientist, she took a controversial position on DNA privacy.[12]

She is a science education video contributor to SciVee[13] and is married to population geneticist Mark D. Shriver.
