GIS4944/5945, GIS Internship, Instructor, Mrs. Leah Lewis, GISP

GIS Internship - Let's get to work!


The following student was chosen to highlight their current GIS internship experience.

Rena Lautzenheiser (Student blog)

Rena is in her final semester of the certificate program.  She is very interested in the using GIS for real estate and utilities along with all of the online applications.  Rena also works as a Montesorri teacher in Pensacola.  When not behind the computer or in front of the classroom, Rena's life revolves around family and two rescues (a senior Catahoula/lab mix and a 10-month old Australian cattle dog/German Shepherd/Lab/pit/keeshond (All-American mutt) which I hope to train for therapy work).  Rena you are a shining example of our student body and we welcome you to the spotlight!  We hope it's warm, because it's cold outside!  PS.  GIS Online loves dogs too - we have a puppy working in the office today.

Internship Background - Rena is currently interning with the West Florida Regional Planning Council under the supervision of Jessica Paul, GISP.  Rena is working on a variety of projects from online map development, spatial database record maintenance, spatial analysis, and even the fun stuff like planning for GIS Day.
