About Beth

Beth is a native of Denver, Colorado and is currently attending the Community College of Denver for an AS with a geology concentration. When she “grows up” she would like to travel the world, monitoring volcanic and other geologic processes. Her passions include geology, geophysics, geomorphology, volcanology, cartography, GIS, Unmanned Aerial Systems (drones), camping, hiking, and spending time with her husband and young daughter. Her time at UNAVCO was spent using drones and structure from motion to map geologic change.
