I am a hydrogeologist in the Aquifer Mapping Program at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology, working on 3-dimensional models of aquifers in the state as well collecting water related data in the field. Born/raised in the Pacific Northwest, I received my B.S. and M.S. from Central Washington University, where I worked on my own groundwater-surface water interaction research while assisting other graduate students with their theses research into aquatic resources. Working in the technical and research side of water resource management is as challenging as it is rewarding, and I look forward to serving the people of New Mexico while exploring the Land of Enchantment.
