Short Biography

I am a hydrologist in the New Jersey Water Science Center and have been working with the USGS since January 1999. I have a B.A. in Environmental Earth Science from Dartmouth College (1998). When my career began with the survey my work focused mainly on surface water quality sampling during storm events as part of the New Jersey Toxic Sediment Reduction Program and Contaminant Assessment and Reduction Program.  Throughout the years, I have also done extensive water quality sampling of the hyporheic zone in gaining reaches of streams throughout New Jersey. Currently, I am the New Jersey Water Science Center Water Use Specialist and as such, my top priority is the maintenance and quality assurance (QA/QC) of New Jersey’s water use data.
