I am one of the GIS Technician/Cartographers for the Geologic Map Production Group at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources. I will be working with field geologists and using ArcGIS, Adobe Illustrator and Global Mapper to update legacy quadrangles and produce geologic maps for the USGS STATEMAP program. I have a BS in Geology from Michigan Tech and a gradute certificate in GIS from Northwest Missouri State. I grew up in Michigan, followed my husband to South Dakota, Colorado, and eventually New Mexico in 2017. He has worked as a paleontologist for the Bureau of Land Managment - Las Cruces District Office since 2016. We currently live on the Rio Grande in Truth or Consquences with our two cats. I enjoy playing boardgames, reading, crafting, and traveling.
