Dr. Kate Zeigler obtained her Ph. D. from the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences at the University of New Mexico in 2008. With the goal of using her specialized knowledge as a means of self-employment, she founded Zeigler Geologic Consulting in 2009. Kate’s scientific services provide the analysis and data needed to effectively manage resources like water, minerals and paleontologic (fossil) items.
The information Zeigler Geologic Consulting provides to city, county and state governments is used to make important decisions about how land, water and other resources are used throughout the state. This is especially true for rural areas of New Mexico that are heavily impacted by drought conditions, as they rely on accurate hydrogeology information to make resource use decisions that impact the entire community. Her analysis and recommendations are also a critical component of success for many core New Mexican industries, including ranching, farming, and oil & gas production.
Kate’s work with WESST began by learning the basics of registering and incorporating a business. As her business grew, her work with WESST focused on developing accurate budgets, creating cashflow projections, and even hiring her first employee. With WESST’s help, Kate was able to turn her passion into a profitable, successful business.
