  Meshek and Associates

 Oklahoma Representative: Oklahoma@scaug.org


I'm a scientist at heart; and a bit of a tinkerer. I love using GIS to solve spatial problems. After earning my Master’s Degree in Geography in 2002, I began a career as a satellite imagery analyst; creating vegetation maps and performing other spatial analyses for wildlife biology studies at The University of Montana's Cooperative Wildlife Research Unit. In 2008 I continued my career, after starting a family and moving cross-country, with Meshek & Associates PLC where I now specialize in 3D data analysis, server applications, and mobile data collection technologies.  I have been an active member of Oklahoma SCAUG since 2008, and have been a member of the SCAUG Executive board as the Oklahoma Representative since 2014. I aspire to bridge the gap between the GIS “Geeks" and “end-users” by presenting the technology in a way that everyone can relate to and understand. I believe Geography is the hub of many disciplines, and if applied correctly, can be the means by which we connect and make sense of them all. GIS is the grease on the axles of business!

As the Louisiana Representative for SCAUG, my goal is to strengthen the bridge between private and public sector GIS in Louisiana and work to get more students involved with SCAUG as the next generation of GIS professionals. I am a 2014 graduate of the Geography & Anthropology program at Louisiana State University and I LOVE geography. My academic background is in human & cultural geography but I have always kept a foot in the professional GIS world from interning with engineering companies to working through college as a GIS intern for the Florida State Senate Committee on Reapportionment, but now I work at APTIM in Baton Rouge as a database and web services manager.
