History & Highlights

I have worked for the USGS since 1996, spending 10 years as a project chief with the Michigan Water Science Center and 10 years with the National Geospatial Program. In Michigan, my projects typically involved water quality work and groundwater-surface water interactions. With NGP, my work has primarily focused on making geospatial data and services more accessible to hydrologists.
