Q: Where were you born?

A: I was born in Blacksburg but moved to North Carolina while my dad finished his graduate degree. We then moved back to Virginia. I currently live in Lexington.

Q: What is your favorite color?

A:  I used to always say purple but now I prefer blue. I enjoy the cool colors.

Q: Do you have any pets/animals?

A: I have a dog named Gertie Sue!

Q: What interests/hobbies do you have outside of work?

A: I really enjoy gardening, especially introducing native plants. I also enjoy DIY projects when time allows.  I love spending time with Gertie Sue- playing and going on walks. I also really love exploring the wine/beer trails of Virginia!

Q: What is a fun fact about you that most people don’t know?

A: I would say I am not a bad cook, haha!

Q: When did you start at Conservation Partners?

A: I was brought on as a seasonal worker in November of 2007 and came on board full-time the following January. I mostly work on GIS/mapping for CP but also work on tax registration and assisting the donation process.

Q: What has been your favorite part about working at Conservation Partners?

A: I love creating the Property Maps for all the landowners we work with. Throughout the years I have learned more about the state of Virginia like identifying counties, topographical features, etc. My academic background was geography so that passion has continued into my role here.

Q: What has been the biggest challenge you have encountered at this job?

A: I would say probably providing the services we do with limited resources. We are a small, private company and don’t always have the newest, most updated technology but we do a good job working with what we have and making sure we provide the best service possible to our landowners.
