I am one of the GIS Technician/Cartographers within the Geologic Map Production Group at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources. I will be working with data collected by the field geologists and using ArcGIS, Adobe Illustrator and Global Mapper to update legacy quadrangles and produce geologic maps for the USGS STATEMAP program and other Bureau publications. I have a BS in Geology from Michigan Tech and a graduate certificate in GIS from Northwest Missouri State. I grew up in Michigan and have also lived in South Dakota, and Colorado. My husband's job as a paleontologist for the Bureau of Land Management in Las Cruces brought us to New Mexico in 2017. Outside of work, I enjoy playing with our cats, playing board games, reading, hiking, crafting, camping, and traveling.
