Hi, I’m Reina.
I’m a GIS specialist and python programmer. I make maps and organize data for a living.
My GIS work
I currently work for a private, national non-profit, the National Trust for Historic Preservation as their GIS Project Manager. I was brought on board three years ago as their first GIS hire; in my time with the National Trust, I’ve provided technical assistance to over 40 projects, set up and managed our organizational ArcGIS Online account as well as other GIS-related software license agreements, provided GIS trainings and workshops to both staff and constituents, and developed a GIS strategy for the organization moving forward.
My programming experience
About three years ago, I became interested in learning how to program. Thanks to wonderful resources like Hear Me Code and Women Who Code, I began to teach myself python, and eventually won a partial scholarship to attend RMOTR’s online bootcamp. The more I learn, the more I love programming and what it can do. I now volunteer with Hear Me Code as an instructor.
Tools I like to use
- ArcGIS - ArcMap10.x, ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online
- Google Earth Engine, Google Earth Pro, Google Sketchup
- Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop
