As a Principal and GIS Analyst based in North Vancouver, I develop and apply GIS to NHC’s work in a wide variety of projects, including flood modelling, flood hazard mapping, flood risk studies, hydrology, river and coastal morphology, and watershed and fish habitat assessment. I am responsible for database development, data management and documentation, GIS customization, and manipulation of spatial data for input to numerical hydraulic models. I play a key role in GIS communication and planning company-wide. In recent years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on many flood studies in BC and am excited to work with a team that helps set the standard for this work in our region, including incorporation of climate change impacts and consideration of flood risk. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, including my two awesome daughters, and I love riding my bike to work and around Vancouver.
