Spring 2011-current: Academic Advising Activity Director – Serving as the director of advising training as part of a Title III education grant for MSCD. Activities include coordinating workshops, designing an academic advising handbook, advising syllabus, and degree plans to help facilitate the formation of a School of Education.
Fall 2011: Community Workshop: Charting the Future of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) in the Earth Sciences and Related Fields – Participated in a UNAVCO sponsored workshop to draw upon the experience and expertise of researchers who are familiar with the current capabilities and challenges of TLS technologies and methodologies.
Summer 2011: Research Experience in Solid Earth Science for Students/Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science – Led a 1.5 day field trip for students and interns to experience gathering field data in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Fall 2010: LiDAR Basics for GIS Managers Workshop – Participated in a LiDAR training session at Merrick and Company led by Bill Emison in Denver, CO.
Fall 2008: STEMAPALOOZA – Attended and presented at a two-day event featuring over 100 exhibitors from around the state of Colorado that support STEM programs for students and educators. Hands-on, minds-on activities, such as Fast-Track Racing, Robotics, Gaming, Film Production, Staging, and Rocketry were presented.
2009-2010: METROLEADS – A member of the MSCD leadership program for outstanding faculty and staff dedicated to make a difference and establish a leadership role in MSCD’s future.
Summer 2008: 9th International Permafrost Conference in Fairbanks, Alaska – Attended a conference that focused on changing permafrost due to climate and different methods to measure distribution. Accompanied students to the conference in order to increase their interest in periglacial geomorphology.
