GIS Specialist / Biologist
Misti serves as the primary GIS Specialist for DESCO. She has an academic background in marine biology, focused on wetlands ecology. Misti began working with DESCO on a temporary basis as a biological monitor for energy exploration and development projects in the Sabine National Forest and the Big Thicket National Preserve; she accepted a position as a full-time GIS Specialist in 2011. Prior to working with DESCO, Misti worked in an environmental program managing lands for a tribal government in the Florida Everglades. There, she gained insight into intergovernmental relationships on both the local and national levels, as well as learning about land management for both environmental preservation and use by the landowner. She occasionally assists with field activities in addition to overseeing DESCO's digitizing and map production functions.
