Biography

I started at the USGS as a Support Geologist with the Earthquake Hazards Program (EHP) in December, 2019 where I help my team conduct research of active faults (primarily) in the Intermountain West via fieldwork, mapping and other desktop / GIS research methods and by maintaining field equipment and vehicles. Within this position I have contributed to projects related to the Eastern Tennessee Seismic Zone, the Wasatch fault zone, updates to the National Seismic Hazard Model, and more.

I manage a USGS social media account and help with EHP, GHSC (Geologic Hazards Science Center) and general USGS science outreach, education and communication by creating social media content, through local commnuity outreach, with interactive ArcGIS storymaps (aka Geonarratives - see "Maps" below) and more.

I have been working as a detailee with the Office of Communications and Publishing since March, 2021 where I have helped cover and communicate a variety of science happening within the USGS via media engagement, writing news releases and social media content, and more (see "News", below).

Science and good science communication are what I'm most passionate about. I love working at the USGS and connecting people to the work we do.
