I am a Senior Geospatial Analyst at the NOAA Office for Coastal Management, where I am the data manager for the MarineCadastre.gov initiative. I have been working in the realm of the GIS for over a decade. I have worked in various fields throughout my career from transportation to utilities infrastructure to land information systems and now the marine environment. I have a Bachelor of Arts dual degree in Environmental Planning and Policy and Geography with a minor in Biology from the University of Maine at Farmington. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my dog - Nemo, SCUBA diving, and traveling.
