I've been working in the environmental protection and advocacy for about 25 years. I currently work at EPA helping states in Region 3 prioritize restoration and preservation of wetlands, streams, forests and other natural areas. Although my degrees are in Geography and Regional Planning, much of my work involves GIS. I particularly enjoy designing GIS models to help us understand the natural systems and anthropogenic impacts to it. Other awesome agencies I've worked for include the US Army Corps of Engineers, the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, and the Brandywine Conservancy. I'm a native Pennsylvanian.
