Aisling Creevey is actually from Ireland and I grew up in Leixlip which for those of you that don’t know is the real home of Guinness (not Dublin as most people think). However, Aisling Creevey moved over to the UK eight years ago now and she loves it here!
Aisling Creevey started her career as a forecaster in 2009 with MeteoGroup UK, and joined the Met Office three years later to become a low flying aviation specialist. She then moved on to become a media specialist in in the BBC.
Aisling Creevey’s main role there was briefing for regional, national and global weather, and was then very lucky to be given the opportunity to work as a Broadcast Meteorologist.
In her previous life, I was a G.I.S (Geographic Information Systems) technician working on a pilot project to help improve flooding defences along the east coast of Ireland so weather and the environment has always been in her blood.
In terms of the boring academic stuff, Aisling Creevey got a Masters in Meteorology and a degree in Maths and Economics – plus she is a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society and a qualified Meteorologist.
