About Nicki

I had the opportunity to go to university a little later in life than most; and I loved everything about it; the knowledge, the students, the energy, the "aha moments." I intended to go into education but geography pulled me in. I'm like Curious George (without the fur). I am a clear, concise communicator with a great sense of humor; for which I can thank my family. Both my adult children had challenges in school and I became adept at consolidating information and explaining things in smaller bundles with a lot of review. I really learned a lot from that about how different people learn, and it gave me empathy. I like helping people and enjoy introducing them to my field.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Geography and I love to talk about place, space, environment, culture, animals, and how they migrate, change and influence each other. I also really enjoy Geographic Information Systems and have nine years of experience working with ESRI ArcGIS software for mapping and geospatial analysis, and have a ArcGIS Desktop Associates certification. This has been my job at a small environmental company. Use of GIS across all disciplines and market is truly booming, and you will probably need to use it at school or even at work sometime soon.

Whether you or your child needs help with basic physical geography (seasons, tides, climate, land masses, etc.) to advanced spatial analysis or mapping using software like ArcMap, Spatial Analyst, or other GIS programs, please contact me and let's figure it out!
