Q & A
Tell us a bit about how you came to join Sidwell.
I have been working on Accela Implementations and finally I have found my home. Thanks Sidwell. I work remotely from my farm in mid-Missouri.
What do you like to do when you aren’t working? (hobbies?)
I am renovating an old farmhouse and raising a Great Pyrenees puppy, not time for much else right now.
If you could be any animal, which would you be?
What’s your favorite thing about GIS?
I like GIS because it provides a way to organize information that can be very easy to understand and let’s face it a picture is worth a million words.
What kinds of trips or activities do you do when you take time off?
I go to Mexico every chance I get – beach, villages, city – so diverse and beautiful.
What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?
I am a chicken whisperer – chickens love me and they follow me around and do tricks for me.
