Athena Masson, Ph.D, MBA

Athena Masson has been a weather enthusiast since the tiny age of 3 when she rode out Hurricane Andrew (1992) in Coral Gables, Florida. Hurricane Andrew made her realize that not everyday is “sunny with a comfortable high temperature of 80°F (26.6°C)”. Since the destruction of Hurricane Andrew on her hometown Athena has tried to learn everything about weather and forecasting.

Athena graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Bachelors of Science and continued to Memorial University of Newfoundland, where she graduated with a Master’s of Science. Her Master’s thesis focused on extratropical transitions in the North Atlantic with special reference to Hurricane Igor (2010). She completed her doctorate at the University of Toronto, where she created a new and improved hurricane scale that will better assess the strength of an approaching hurricane in the North Atlantic Ocean. This scale is known as the Masson – Gough Hurricane Scale. She also holds a Masters of Business Administration from Jacksonville University. Although a hurricane expert and enthusiast, Athena also delves into other meteorological, climatological, and natural disaster topics.

Athena created “Weather Goddess” to share her love for meteorology. She loves to discuss current and past meteorological events that have occurred across the world.
