FLO Welcomes Kate Doiron, New Senior GIS Analyst
FLO’s newest senior GIS analyst, Kate Doiron, has joined our growing East Coast team. We welcomed Kate in March, just a couple weeks prior to when the first stay-at-home orders were announced due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite beginning a new job during a national crisis, Kate has already contributed to the team in many ways, from building data visualization that maps vulnerable populations and COVID-19 cases for the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, to delighting her colleagues with pictures of herself in matching outfits with her dog.
Kate has 15 years of experience using GIS to help federal, state, and non-profit clients solve complex geospatial problems and manage spatial data. Prior to joining FLO, Kate was the sole GIS specialist for ten years at an environmental consulting firm in Boston, where she oversaw GIS operations and analyses, and used her GIS skillsets to assist staff with hundreds of spatial project tasks, including GIS modeling and raster data processing, for a variety of federal and state clients.
“I love solving complex issues using GIS. It’s like figuring out an exciting puzzle! What unique combination of spatial data and GIS tools will give us the best solution to move a project forward for a client or help a community? At FLO my team members and I are also pieces of the puzzle, using our skills to produce compelling results.”
