With a background in history, classics, and museum studies, I have transitioned into the geomatics/GIS field in order to focus on developing and progressing geospatial archaeology and history.
I originally graduated from Carleton University in 2011 with a B.A. Honours in History and Classics, then graduated from the Algonquin College Applied Museum Studies program in 2015. From this program, I worked mainly with Tucker House Renewal Centre to establish and develop their history program as well as their heritage preservation protocols. I continued on this path until early 2017 when I discovered the field of geomatics, which after much research and discussion with the head of the Carleton University geomatics program, I decided to go back to school in the Fall of 2017 in order to broaden my life and work capabilities. Through a fast-tracked degree, I will be taking one more year at Carleton before an expected graduation next June.
In tandem with my heritage and geomatics background, I have also worked in the home building business, different areas of construction, and have also worked in the natural resources industry by way of Enbridge. These are also areas that I am interested in applying my developing geomatics and GIS capabilities to, alongside my archaeology and heritage preservation focus
