Kevin oversees the data entry and quality control of very large and diverse datasets catalogued in the online federal database, ServCat, for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Refuge Inventory and Monitoring Program. The information available in ServCat will be used to develop Natural Resource Management plans (NRMPs) and Inventory and Monitoring Plans (IMPs) for the National Wildlife Refuges in the Pacific Southwest Region. In addition, methods for mining of the legacy data will be developed and tested.
Previously, Kevin managed the Natural Resource Projects Inventory Database, served as a liaison for Information Center for the Environment (ICE) and government agency lead, mid-managers and staff associated with the database, and performed public outreach. She worked on development and tracking of grant proposals, and assisted database programmer analysts with principal investigator and agency client needs assessment. Kevin also serves on the Advisory Board of Directors for the California Watershed Network.
