Prior to working for ELS, Keelin lived in Thailand and was an English teacher for 7th and 8th grade students where part of her curriculum was an “English through science class”. While earning her B.S. in Earth & Space Sciences, Geology, she gained experience by working on projects that included producing geologic maps and collecting field data. Since coming to work at ELS in 2018, Keelin has played a key role in numerous wetland projects including delineations, habitat assessments, and critical areas reports. She has also worked on several projects that include shoreline restoration plans and exemptions. Keelin adapts quickly to changing projects and is very thorough in her communication and report writing.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

I truly hate the sound of people clipping their nails.

What do you like most about working at ELS?

The people who work here!

If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?

A starving artist.

If you could have a super power, what would it be and why?

This is an easy one—a shapeshifter! I always admired Mystique in X-Men, and you don’t need any other superpower if you can change into any person (or animal) you like.
