I am a GIS Specialist with the USDA - Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Somerset, NJ. Here, I provide technical support to planners who work with private landowners to undertake land and water conservation on their property. Prior to working for NRCS, I was a Senior Planner for the City of Trenton and a GIS Specialist for the NJ Office of State Planning. I have a B.S. in Environmental Science from Rutgers University and a M.S. in Environmental Monitoring from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I have been a member of URISA for many years and value the organization and its mission.
