Each year Miami Today publishes The Best of Miami edition to highlight people and organizations from multiple fields that make a difference in the community. The special edition articles focus on the best in each respective field from arts and culture to health and medicine to international business and role models.  In this year’s 37thedition, AOML’s own Molly Baringer takes the well-deserved spotlight.  As the deputy director of NOAA’s AOML, she has worked hard to make critical observations in her field as well as support and lead her team.  In the article Barringer expresses that, “As a leader of a science organization, you have to fall in love with everything that you do.”  Molly Baringer’s passion, creativity, and leadership skills truly make her one of the best in Miami.
