What I Do

I serve as the liaison between PGC and the varying communities we engage including our users, funders, affiliated partners, other research groups, and the general public. Our engagement efforts are reciprocal, which means PGC is both providing and receiving information and resources with its communities. If you have ideas for collaboration, please reach out to me!

As a born and raised Minnesotan and Anishinaabekwe, I know no bad weather, try to be nice, and try to live my life in balance. My professional interests are data sovereignty, FAIR and CARE principle implentation, cartography, and data visualization. I enjoy bicycling, paddleboarding, camping, painting, cooking, and building forts. My fond of travel has exceedingly grown after living abroad in Asia and Latin America. All said adventures are enjoyed exponentially more with my husband and three children.
