Biography

As a hydrologist for the U.S. Geological Survey, I perform research on water quality and groundwater and write reports. I serve as the report specialist for the South Dakota Water Science Center and other Centers within the U.S. Geological Survey. I chair the Western South Dakota Hydrology Conference, which is held annually in April. I also serve as the webmaster and outreach coordinator.

 

Education:

M.S., Geological Engineering, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, 1994.

B.S., Geological Engineering, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, 1992.
