8x10-WREN-CLAIR-2021-small

Get to Know Wren

Wren is ecstatic to be back home in the Twin Cities with her husband Adam and their cat Charlie. At the end of the day, you will find her studying or diving into a research project.  Wren loves to cross country and downhill ski in the winter. She practices heated yoga and meditation year round.  Wren is a sports enthusiast cheering on baseball, hockey, and winter sports. She is passionate about the arts and when she can find some extra time, she enjoys making drawings, paintings, or pottery.

Before her start in TV, Wren worked as a chemist and has co-authored multiple publications, primarily in organic synthesis, even more particularly in relation to indole dimer chemistry.

Wren holds a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology from Mississippi State University. In addition, she holds degrees in Chemistry and Anthropology from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. She is currently in a Master’s of Science Program at Johns Hopkins University studying Environmental Science and Policy with a Climate and Energy Track.  Wren is also an active member of the American Meteorological Society.

Wren is a Hopkins native who began her broadcasting career in Rhinelander, Wisconsin forecasting snowstorms and lake effect snow off Lake Superior. In Boston, she covered weather events including the February 2017 blizzard and historic flooding from the “bomb cyclone” in January 2018 (She doesn’t like to use the term bomb cyclone because it actually doesn’t mean anything, but it became a popular description of the storm where bombogenesis occurred).  KSTP welcomed her back to Minnesota in June 2018.

 

“How did you get interested in meteorology?”

Originally through atmospheric chemistry, plus an interest and course material in geo hazards.  Ever since I was a kid, I had a fascination with climate on Earth throughout its ancient history.

“What’s the hardest part about your job?”

Navigating social media.

“What does ‘Minnesota’s Weather Authority’ mean to you?”

It is a responsibility to serve the public and provide a quality product to enhance community safety.

“What’s your favorite season and why?”

I like every season except early to mid-spring.

“If you weren’t a meteorologist, what would you be?”

Atmospheric/climate researcher, potentially with policy implications.
