Spokane Tribe
GIS Manager
Spokane, WA
Over 30 years ago my career began with a data processing internship at the City of Tacoma on a Prime minicomputer with something new called ARC/INFO. Since, I have worked at power utilities and have spent nearly 18 years doing tribal GIS with Muckleshoot and Spokane. I have served on the national GIS Certification Institute’s Applicant Review Committee and several terms as the Chair of the Washington State Section of the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (WSS-ACSM). At Spokane, I am currently developing and managing "Tribal GIS" an enterprise GIS implementation with over 110 feature classes of vector data combined with digital imagery though projects: Forestry Applications Tracking System (FATS), Base Application System Environment (BASE), Land Ownership Tracking System (LOTS). In a snapshot, my education consists of an Associate of Arts from the University of Maryland, a Bachelor of Arts (Geography/Cartography) from the University of Washington (UW), an Associate of Data Processing from Pierce College, a Software Engineering Certificate (UW) and an MS in GIS from the University of Redlands with other courses, seminars, workshops and presentations scattered in between and all along.
