Haley is a Post Baccalaureate student at the University of Montana currently working towards a GIS certificate. Haley graduated from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2019 with a degree in Environmental Studies, and then moved to Montana to work with the Montana Conservation Corps. During her time with the Montana Conservation Corps, Haley led a backcountry trail crew in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness in Idaho and Montana. This experience inspired her to pursue further education in Geographic Information Systems with a focus on environmental conservation. This past Summer Haley worked as a Geospatial Intern for the Water Management Bureau at the DNRC, where she worked to create a map displaying agricultural fields in Paradise Valley, MT. This experience has made her interested in working towards finding sustainable water resource solutions that benefit both the environment, and the those that make a living working in agriculture. Haley loves being outside and has many hobbies including hiking, snowboarding, and climbing. She also enjoys playing piano and reading science fiction books in the company of her cat. Haley is excited to learn more about the technicalities of water resource conservation and to better her GIS skills with WWT.
