Hurricane Gloria was the event that turned Marisa Ferger into an official "weather weenie." The storm forced her hometown of Bayville, NY to be evacuated and sparked her interest in meteorology. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, Marisa worked as an on-air meteorologist and reporter at WPBN in Traverse City, MI and KOKH in Oklahoma City, OK. Before joining the Weather Communications Group in July of 2002, Marisa worked in television and radio in State College, PA.

In addition to being involved in Meteorology students' academic and organizational activities, Marisa teaches weather communications and frequently appears on "Weather World," which is broadcast daily on the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) at 5:45 p.m. and WPSU-TV at 5:30 p.m. and again at 5:45 p.m.
