She moved from a small town in Philadelphia to Big Snowy Mountains in Montana when she was 12 years old with her parents and siblings. Initially, she was not very happy with the change but soon adapted to it.
Her father instilled in her the importance of being independent. He taught Storm how to shoot guns, use tools, and remodel the family home when she was just a kid. She would often go hiking and camping with her family, too.
Storm has a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences from Oregon State University.
Post her education, Storm worked in Puerto Rico on sustainable tourism initiatives. She spent most of her free time surfing and exploring the beaches there.

How Does She Like to Spend Her Free Time?
When Storm was asked in an interview what she likes to do in her free time, she revealed, “If I have enough down time, I like to schedule a vacation or even weekend getaway so I can totally decompress and re-energize. On a daily basis, I like to get outside in nature and I feel great after a nice run through Griffith Park or along Lake Michigan. I also love to explore the culture of the city, new restaurants, classic bars, art galleries and museums.”
