She joined the staff of the National Center for Atmospheric Research High Altitude Observatory (NCAR/HAO) in 1992 and was promoted to Senior Scientist in 2003. She served as the Director of the NCAR Advanced Study Program between 2005 and 2010. She became NCAR Deputy Director in 2008 and served as NCAR Interim Director from March through August 2013.
