- Geographic Information Science
- Community Engagement in Biodiversity Conservation
As part of the Research, Conservation, and Collections team, I manage the enterprise geographic information system and oversee mapping of the plants in Desert Botanical Garden’s living collection. In addition to mapping our living collection, I also support the department by collaborating on research projects and providing maps and spatial analysis for publications. I work closely with volunteers and staff, training them to use GPS surveying equipment and LiDAR technology to collect accurate data for our database. Conservation is my passion and I love working for an organization that prioritizes finding solutions to protect and preserve the environment.
