Kelsey Chase
President of AMS Student Chapter

Hi there! I am a Meteorology & Climate Science major going into my fourth year at SJSU. I am also the President of our SJSU AMS student chapter for the upcoming school year. My favorite weather phenomenons are hurricanes! I work on campus at the SRAC as an Operations Assistant and Fitness Instructor. I am also in AFROTC and plan to commission after college as a Weather Officer. In my free time I love to work out, hike, read, hang out with my friends, and take photos of pretty sunsets.

Sonia Dosanjh
Vice-President of AMS Student Chapter

Hello fellow weather enthusiasts! My name is Sonia and my major is Meteorology with a Climate Science concentration. I’m starting my third year at San Jose State and currently the Vice President of SJSU AMS student chapter for the 2021-2022 school year! I’m passionate about climate science and would love to learn more about the cryosphere as part of the Earth’s climate. Although, I’m currently undecided what I will plan to do after I complete my undergraduate degree, I do know I would like to work in the field of climate science and environmental science. Other than climate science, I’m passionate about music/music production, painting, fashion design/styling, and reading!

Enrique Saldivar
Treasurer of AMS Student Chapter

Hello everyone. My name is Enrique, but everyone calls me Quique. I am going to my 4th year as a Meteorology major and am thrilled to be the new treasure for SCAMS. My favorite weather phenomenon is the North American Monsoon. I have always been intrigued by it as a kid and plan to pursue my Masters in improving forecasts for the North American Monsoon. When I have free time, I like to ride my bike and explore new places, and I enjoy gardening, with agaves and palm trees being my favorite plants.
