I have just completed my first year of SAIT’s Bachelor of Geographic Information Systems (BGIS). The BGIS program has provided me with the foundational skills and knowledge necessary to excel as a GIS technician using the ArcGIS suite of products. I am currently employed as a GIS tutor at SAIT assisting students enrolled in SAIT’s BGIS program. Prior to returning to school, I spent five years’ as a travel writer, blogging and engaging with over 200 followers on a regular basis through stories and photography. This experience rounded out my extensive technical and interpersonal skill set gained through twenty years’ as a dedicated IT professional working in both the private sector and as a business owner with a variety of organizations. I am looking to leverage my vast technical knowledge, coupled with my fresh GIS skills to gain a position as a Junior GIS Technician.
