Alumni in the Spotlight

Buffy Conrad ‘08

Buffy graduated with vast experience and skills in the GIS field. While attending Washington College, she took Professor Bruce’s GIS classes and interned in the GIS lab, all of which helped her prepare for her career after graduation. Buffy has carried her love for the GIS field into her new job with the Maryland State Highway Administration. Buffy provides GIS data for engineers such as aerials, contours, and maps. She takes photographs of sidewalks and mediums. The engineers then use these images and maps for better roadway design. She is currently working on a website, which is very new to her, that is about point collection and contours. Buffy enjoys her job with the Maryland State Highway Administration and is glad that she could use her GIS skills in the workforce.
