Since 2015, I have been the GIS Coordinator for the Delaware Department of Agriculture where part of my time is spent managing land preservation data for Agricultural Lands Preservation Program. My remaining time is spent expanding the use of GIS throughout the Department where it can improve efficiency and data sharing. My GIS specialties are relational geospatial data management, managing web services, and web & mobile applications hosted in ArcGIS Online. I'm also a Wildfire GIS Specialist and make myself available for temporary assignments at wildfires in the western US through the Delaware Forest Service.

I have worked for the Penn State's MGIS program since graduating from it in 2011. I am an instructor for GEOG 863 - Web Application Development for Geospatial Professionals and also a TA for GEOG 485 - Python, GEOG 489 - GIS Application Development, and GEOG 585 - Open Web Mapping.

Prior to full-time GIS life - I spent over 10 years as an Environmental Scientist at the Department of Agriculture. I have undergraduate degrees in Biology and Environmental Studies from the University of Maine at Machias.
