What do you enjoy most about your job and why?
I enjoy tackling complex challenges and solving problems in collaboration with my amazing GIS team.
If you had to describe what it is like working at Pickett in one word, what would it be and why?
Engaging – At Pickett, I know my voice is heard, that my ideas are taken seriously, and that my contributions are valued. I love collaborating with my colleagues to bring data to life in maps, web apps and data visualizations. There are so many opportunities to learn, grow and engage at Pickett, in both formal and informal settings. I love being surrounded by colleagues who spark my intellectual curiosity and provide me new learning opportunities daily.

I have found that my ability to think outside of the box and approach problems from a different perspective has been very effective in helping my colleagues anticipate and solve complex challenges.
