One of my personal goals when finishing college was to have a job lined up upon completion my degree. Without the careful guidance of the DoGG staff I do not thing I would have been able to complete this goal. I turned in the final paper for my Masters in GIS Management on July 19, 2011 and started my career at Maryland Environmental Service (MES) on July 20, 2011, where I continue to work as a GIS Specialist to this day.
Throughout my career at MES I have had the chance to work for many different projects all over the state of Maryland and for multiple clients. Some of our largest clients include the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA), Maryland Port Administration (MPA), and Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
My current project, and most longstanding, has to do with the inventory and inspection of stormwater features for SHA. Being a part of this project use a myriad of skills learned at my time in Salisbury’s DoGG including, georeferencing, following general topology rulse, working with GPS, and raster interpretation. The Masters in GIS Management really prepared me for my role as Project Lead on this current project. As Project Lead I use many skills learned in the Master’s program such as database normalization, proposal design, budget tracking, and project management.
In addition to the scholastic knowledge I gained from being a part of Salisbury’s DoGG I also learned to be a productive employee. The working relationships I built with my professors, peers, and other colleagues has followed me on my path to a successful career in the GIS field.
