LCDR Raymond was appointed into the NOAA Corps in 2006 and has completed two sea assignments and three land assignments. Her first sea assignment was aboard NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson, a hydrographic survey vessel. Her first land assignment was Expedition Operations Leader, located at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography. This assignment enabled her to work with and sail on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, which prepared her to fill the role of Operations Officer on this same vessel during her second sea tour. LCDR Raymond then worked at OMAO Headquarters as Flag Secretary before reporting to the Program Coordination Office (PCO) as OMAO Program Coordination Officer. She is currently the Operations Manager for the Ocean Observing and Monitoring Division in the Climate Program Office. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Sciences from the University of Maine.


Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
