Favorite thing you like about your work:
I love being able to apply my technical skills to my USGS job and get to do field work for my dissertation.

Based on your own experience, what did you get out of your time at MOSS and why would you recommend it to someone else?
MOSS taught me communication skills that I would otherwise not have learned in my "hard-science" background. It was because of my teaching background that I was offered the USGS job so I can teach and communicate computer based skills. I loved MOSS and all of the wonderful friends I made and I would highly recommend to anyone!
