Sabine Krier | GIS Analyst

Sabine has been a member of the Tribe’s GIS team since 2010, and as such, is able to provide unparalleled support and technical training to other tribal programs for meeting their project needs. With her prior background in survey and CAD work, she initially focused on updates to parcels and other spatial feature edits on the reservation, but then expanded her skillset to collection, analysis, and management of GIS data as well as the creation of a wide variety of maps and web applications. During this time, she received her academic GIS certificate from the University of Idaho. She played a key role in launching the Tribe’s UAS program in 2017. Naturally, piloting these drones added a new favorite outdoor activity to her list, but she also learned to process the captured aerial image data for mapping and analysis.

Sabine grew up in the Teutoburg Forest in Germany. 1982, she moved to the Pacific Northwest to raise her family. She loves the mountains, lakes, and forests of this area and is passionate about conservation of these resources and fascinated by cultural histories related to our natural environment. Her favorite outdoor activities are hiking, Nordic skiing, biking and kayaking. At home, she enjoys gardening, building projects and being a closet musician.

Camron Johnson | GIS Technician

Camron is the newest member of our team. He graduated with a degree in Natural Resources and a certification in GIS from the University of Idaho in 2017. He previously assisted the Bureau of Land Management Upper Snake Field Office with travel and transportation management planning and edited data for Apple Maps in Seattle. A Coeur d’Alene local, Camron is pleased to return to the region and use his skills in the place he calls home.

On the weekends you can sometimes find him climbing rocks or reading a good book. Most of the time you’ll find him taking care of his new baby, and running around after his chocolate lab.
