I am a geospatial analyst at NOAA's Office for Coastal Management in Charleston, SC . I work primarily on socioeconomic datasets, producing data, analyzing data, and doing some heavy duty quality assurance and control. Upon joining the center about 4 years ago and working on the ENOW (Economics: National Ocean Watch) dataset, I discovered my love for excel and all things spreadsheet related. I have a B. A. in political science from Loyola University Chicago, and an M.Sc. in Environmental Science from Southern Illinois University (go Salukis!).
