Amber joined MSA in 2013 with a focus on tackling complex challenges from across all disciplines—from community planning to transportation and water resources, leveraging geographic data to identify efficient and effective solutions. Her areas of expertise include map production, database management, GPS and survey support as well as spatial modeling.
Amber serves as the GIS Community of Practice (CoP) chair, currently with 25 members. The GIS CoP is comprised of GIS-users with unique specialties who communicate regularly to deepen their knowledge base. Specialties within this group include website design, utility system mapping, GPS data collection, gravity and pressured water system modeling, watershed analysis, big data analytics and cartography.
As a member of the water resources team, Amber provides our clients with spatial data management and support for a wide range of projects. For instance, she helped develop a water quality model for the Nine Springs Creek watershed in Fitchburg, Wis., that led to an overall strategy for stormwater rate, volume and water quality improvements. She also partners with other disciplines at MSA, for example teaming with transportation engineers to complete a statewide crash analysis in Georgia to help prioritize locations for intersection improvements.
Amber earned her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Macalester College and her master’s degree in environmental science from the University of Virginia. Her background in chemistry and experimental design enables her to bridge the divide between scientific research and engineering applications.
