The capacity to blunder slightly is the real marvel of DNA. Without this special attribute, we would still be anaerobic bacteria and there would be no music.

B.S. Zoology, minor Biology and Ecology, Washington State University

I teach biological sciences as well as chemistry at Green Fields. I also serve as the faculty adviser to the middle and upper-school student council. I completed a Bachelor of Science degree at Washington State University, where my undergraduate research focused on invasive species. I then entered a joint Master of Science degree program with the College of Environmental Science and the Peace Corps. In Peace Corps I served as a biologist working with the United Nations Development Program and the Ministry of the Environment in Africa to aid in the establishment of Cape Verde’s first protected area. After returning from the Corps, I completed a Master of Science in zoology from WSU, where I also taught a variety of university biology courses. My hobbies include hiking, backpacking, rock climbing and spending time with my lovely husband, son, and daughter.
