Fourteen years of experience as a Senior Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) analyst within the Department of Defense using ArcGIS, ERDAS Imagine, Remote View, and Google Earth to develop advanced GIS methodologies. By the end of 2013, I will obtain my BA in Emergency and Disaster Management and plan to pursue my MA in Environmental Planning.
Serve as Lead Geospatial Analyst for the Rivanna Station NST to a group of over 300 All-Source analysts. This work consists of monitoring requirements, reviewing each customer's request, determining which tailored Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) product meet these needs, assigning production to Geospatial Analysts, or developing new GIS methodologies.
Support National Ground Intelligence Centers Geospatial Methodology Branch through advanced geospatial analysis utilizing multiple spatial analysis tools to show mobility, demographics (population analysis) and hydrology. This included time based cross country mobility if normal routes were not available, understanding the demographics of this population and the current infrastructure of an area.
Organize and hosted yearly multi-agency GIS conferences for the National Ground Intelligence Center. These conferences were used to inform attendees about new geospatial techniques, tools and databases being used not only at NGIC, but throughout the Intelligence community.
Produce advanced models utilizing ArcGIS model builder to automate dozens of analytical process which cut hours of production time for hundreds of products.
Provide accurate, timely, and actionable GIS analysis and written terrain assessments of potential hazards in support of analytical papers which are briefed to NGIC's Senior Leaders and National Policy makers.
Update and maintains map services using ArcIMS which includes daily updates to mission specific datasets to GIS analysts and non-GIS analysts.
Prepare and analyze data for predictive analysis which required research and collection of new datasets for analysis.
Analyze and evaluate the capabilities of new GIS tools that link analyst tools such as statistical analysis programs and demographic analysis. This leads to the mentoring of non-GIS analysts and GIS analysts on the capabilities of these new analytical processes.
Collected, recorded, analyzed, and briefed terrain and intelligence data for fused products to the Commanding General while attached to the Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa.
Contributed to the operational and contingency planning efforts of component commands and partner nations by producing Terrain Categorizations that included a sixty thousand square kilometers road study and 15 detailed terrain studies covering over three hundred and fifty thousand square kilometers while at the U.S. Southern Command. These studies included the use of multi-spectral imagery to identify different types of vegetation, routes through heavily forested areas, and locating infrastructure.
