I am a hydrogeologist in the Aquifer Mapping Program and CKAN Curator for the Water Data Initiative at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology. From collecting data in the field for the Healy Collaborative Groundwater Monitoring Network to publishing data on our CKAN data catalog, my work is focused on getting water data to the public. Born/raised in the Pacific Northwest, I received my B.S. and M.S. from Central Washington University. Working in the technical and research side of water resource management is as rewarding as it is challenging, and I enjoy serving the people of New Mexico across the Land of Enchantment.
