Preparing to deliver a webinar on Collaborative Spatial Planning in the Great Basin through Conservation Biology Institute.
Areas of Interest:
Web Mapping, Story Maps, Collaborative Conservation, Collaboration Platforms And Tools, Landscape Ecology, Non-equilibrium Ecology, Biological Inventory And Monitoring, Restoration Ecology
I am currently the geospatial data specialist and data manager for the Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative in Lakewood, Colorado and soon expect to transition into a graduate program for spatial ecology. Through several years of conservation corps and ecological monitoring in the Pacific Northwest and Great Basin, I became interested in landscape-scale analyses as tools for assessing ecological dynamics and change. I'm hopeful that integrated approaches such as these can help our communities to adapt to the changes that we're already facing.
In my free time I enjoy spending time outside backpacking, cycling, and trail running. I'm also an avid wildcrafter and gardener and can often be found concocting herbal bitters, tinctures and other potions.
I attended the SCGIS conference for the first time in 2017 and have been an enthusiastic member of the communications committee ever since!
