After graduation I began my career as a GIS analyst with Regional Planning Technologies (RPT). At RPT I performed many different GIS duties like parcel and planimetric data updates to client software support. In March of 2003 RPT formed a partnership with GeoDecisions, a division of Gannett Fleming, Inc., which brought me to GeoDecisions as a senior analyst. I have since been promoted to a project manager and GIS manager for the Pittsburgh Gannett Fleming office. I now manage more than thirty clients all over Pennsylvania and oversee a small staff of GIS analysts who perform work on my jobs. Without my education from IUP I would not have been able to achieve so much in my career. The knowledge I gained at IUP was vital in obtaining a starting position in the field of GIS and building my career to where it is now.
