McMurdo Science & Technical Projects Services (S&TPS) Implementation Manager
A native of Golden, Colorado and a graduate from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, I started in the USAP in 1992 as a General Assistant. I deployed to McMurdo Station for three seasons and took a five year hiatus from the program until 2000. I returned in 2000 as the IT Trainer and then moved into an Operation Scheduler position. In 2005 I took a three month break to cycle across America. During that trip I accepted the Helicopter Operations Supervisor and thus began my career in directly supporting science in Antarctica. I spent four years in Helicopter Operations and then moved into Fixed Wing Operations for five years. I have been the McMurdo S&TPS Implementation Manager for five years. Working in the USAP is always dynamic, exciting, and full of challenges and opportunities to problem solve!
