Sandra LaCorte

Observations Program Coordinator

Sandra (“Sandy”) LaCorte is a contractor supporting the Weather Program Office (WPO) as an Observations Program Coordinator. 

Prior to WPO, Sandy worked as a National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologist for just shy of 12 years at Weather Forecast Offices located in Huntsville, AL, Wilmington, NC and Greenville-Spartanburg, SC. Aside from time spent and experience gained with severe weather, tropical weather and winter weather forecasting, Sandy spent a lot of her time involved with building a Weather-Ready Nation through community outreach and working closely with partners through Decision Support Services (DSS).

Jennifer earned her M.S. degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of Wyoming and her B.S. degree in Meteorology from Millersville University of Pennsylvania. Jennifer is a health and wellness coach through Beachbody where she loves to help others live a healthier lifestyle. She also enjoys running and is training for her first marathon this fall.

Sandy’s education includes a B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences with a concentration in Weather Forecasting from UNC Asheville and a M.S. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Unlike most meteorologists, Sandy’s passion for weather stemmed from what was once a childhood fear of thunder and lightning, known as astraphobia. If she’s not outside taking pictures of cumulonimbus clouds, sunsets and other weather phenomena, you can find Sandy learning to garden and sew, decorating cookies, singing along at a concert, and cheering on the Carolina Panthers.
