Finding accurate data and making the most efficient vessel to that information is key to advancement in our changing world.


As a college student in the work force I have the experience and adaptability to combine work ethic with the constant flexibility required for learning. I am attaining a degree in Biology and am striving for a Masters degree as well. I started off working in the stressful job environment of Auto Body, learning how to deal with any difficulty and gaining mentorship in LEAN methodology. I am currently a data miner for the U. S. Geological Survey (leader of the pursuit in scientific knowledge), and by using AGILE development our team has been working on a solution to one of our worlds major difficulties that causes stress for scientists through loss of time and money. The advancements in technology have caused information and data to grow exponentially in size and breadth, costing millions for organizations to "deal" with. I am a part of storing, organizing, integrating, and analyzing data through, and into Science Base.
