EPP/MSI participation


  • M.S. Geology from Purdue University supported by the Graduate Sciences Program.
  • B.A. Geology from Mount Holyoke College.

The education allowed me learn GIS skills, and the opportunity to initially work for NOAA as a cartographer. I was able to build on these skills and enter the field of hydrography (ocean mapping), also for NOAA.
