A GIS practitioner and student of geography and the environment, I am interested in our human relationship with the world around us. I am excited and passionate about science and technology studies and science communication, and feel most at home when I am combining my extensive technical knowledge with my excellent written and oral communication skills to convey complex scientific ideas to diverse audiences of experts and non-experts alike.

I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin; Madison in Landscape Architecture and am currently enrolled at University of Colorado; Denver, pursuing a master’s degree in Applied Geography and Geospatial Sciences with a GIS certificate. My research interests include qualitative GIS, environmental GIS, transportation & infrastructure, public health & equity in the built environment, cultural landscapes, and critical human geography.

I have experience using ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Pro, and ArcGIS Online, along with associated apps such as StoryMaps, Survey123, Collector, and CityEngine. In addition to ESRI products, I have experience using Quantum GIS, Adobe Illustrator and other creative suite programs, Microsoft Office including Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, and various collaborative team environments such as GoogleDrive, OneDrive, and Microsoft Teams. 


When I'm not reading, writing, studying, or making maps, you'll usually find me camping, hiking, or biking in the mountains, baking bread in my tiny kitchen, or gazing lovingly at my two cats.
