2017 MAGIP Board Nominees
At Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) since 2007, I have developed the specific skills ideal for success as Vice President for Montana Association of GIS Professionals (MAGIP). I have advanced from a GIS user to technical leader with strong skills in analytical thinking, relational database management, and a deep understanding of the GIS issues facing Montana users. I have developed valuable relationships within all FWP and throughout many state agencies that will support the collaborative needs of this position. I have built a reputation as a person to go to for thoughtful advice, teamwork, leadership, implementation of programs, technical advice, creative solutions, and analysis goals. I look forward to the opportunity to share my experience with others, grow the Montana GIS community, and learn from all others who value GIS's role in making Montana one of the best places on earth. Thank you for your consideration.
