I'd be lying if I told you it's always been my passion to make maps when I "grew up." Yet, here I am in a field I love assisting Alta's amazing planning staff tell stories through maps. My GIS work at Alta allows me to explore creative design and data-driven analysis to provide active transportation solutions for communities across the country.
