He earned a Masters in Geography with an emphases in GIS & Cartography from The University of Montana and has been working with GIS since 1995. Willard joined Meshek and relocated to Tulsa in July of 2008 after spending the previous 5 years as a Remote Sensing Analyst at The University of Montana in support of wildlife biology research. His favorite things about GIS are the enormous variety of real world applications, and the growing interest it has generated in Geography as a field of study.


Talia Gammill - Secretary Currently  the GIS Specialist at Cotton Electric Cooperative, Inc., a rural electric distribution coop in Walters, OK. I began my career at Cotton Electric as a CAD Tech in June of 2000. Through many combined efforts Cotton had their entire distribution system GPS’d about 6 years ago which then put me into the GIS field, where my main tasks are to provide all necessary GIS data to help aid the Coop in planning, design, and analysis to improve and maintain our distribution system.  I earned my bachelor of business administration in 2008 from Cameron University. 
Although I have been in this field for several years, I have not had much experience with hands on tasks to help the GIS community. I felt that it was time to broaden my network in the GIS field as well as help others in this field realize that there are many organizations and people locally that are available to give help and information no matter what level of GIS experience you have.
I would like to have the opportunity to help our local GIS community with gaining the resources needed to contact and reach out to others like themselves, so that this profession will continue to grow and be readily recognized .
