I came to Salt Lake City in the fall of 1981....and never left. 

I am grateful for the varied opportunities that I have had over the years, which have allowed me to see the USGS from many vantage points; in the field where data collection begins, in the lab where samples are analyzed, behind a computer where analytical results are processed, compiled and interpreted, tables constructed, and reports are prepared, reviewed, and revised.

Currently, I am learning about the logistics of making work possible from first ideas to final products, how money moves, how we acquire equipment and supplies, how we partner with local, state, and federal entities, and how we serve our larger community by sharing our results through dynamic platforms.
