Board member

Cynthia holds two degrees in Geology; a Bachelors from Duke University (Cum Laude) and a Masters from Rice University. She has a passion for Geology and feels very fortunate to have spent three decades getting paid to do what she enjoys. For 27 years she worked for BP, first as a Geologist, then in management roles of increasing responsibility. With BP she had the enriching experience of living and working on three continents, giving her an exposure to global geology. Since retiring to Jackson Hole in 2016, she has been a guest speaker at the University of Wyoming, Wyoming Geological Association, and the Geologists of Jackson Hole.  She is honored to serve on the GJH Board and committed to continuing the important work of bringing relevant and interesting science to the community.

In 2016 Cynthia started a consulting company and has been supporting local entrepreneurs and businesses. She lives with her husband of 29 years, Dan Creighton (Geophysicist), and their three children, all of whom attend Jackson Hole High School. They all love living here and spending time outdoors.
