Sharon (Parkes) Payne, GIS Specialist
and AWAE Website administrator
I graduated Summa Cum
Laude as an 1890ís USDA
Land-grant Scholar from Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri where
I majored in Natural Resources and received a Minor in Computer Science. I
worked the summers at the RMRS Logan, Utah Research Lab (former INT) working
with the entomologists there as a student computer trainee, and participating in
fieldwork. After graduation, I began work in Boise and was able to sharpen
my GIS and computer skills to assist those here at the lab.
I am currently working at the
Boise Aquatic Sciences Lab as a GIS Specialist and as the
and AWAE website administrator.
I am also currently serving on the Rocky Mountain Research Station's Civil Rights Committee.
