GIS Analyst for the last 4 years. I graduated with my Advanced Diploma in GIS from Vancouver Island University in April 2009. I have over 5 years experience in the forest industry, with strong skills in GPS operations, data corrections, and GPS training. Over the years I have built my skills in GIS with experience in ArcSDE, ArcInfo, ArcEditor, Genus, and Cengea: The Forest Manager (Client Specific ArcGIS system). I have built and designed complex spatial databases, and developed data collection procedures and methodologies. I have created websites and web-based programs. I have experience in programming with VBA and Model Builder, and have strong knowledge of geographic coordinate systems, transformation methods, scripting languages, and programming.
Furthermore, I have strong knowledge and understanding of GPS data and GPS programming. In my current position I prepare data, perform data quality checks, data conversions, database management, and GIS analysis for reports and projects. I have developed good leadership skills, effective interpersonal skills, and clear working relationships with other internal departments. I am comfortable working with sub-contractors, other government agencies, and in diverse working situations. Finally, I have had numerous opportunities to present projects and workshops to both small and large groups of people.
