Growing up camping every weekend, I quickly fell in love with lakes, rivers, the ocean, the desert, forests, marshes. . actually almost anywhere outside! Rocks, dirt, and water were my passion. In school, I studied chemistry, geology, and political science at University of Washington in Seattle.
Wanting more connection between chemistry and geology, I was fortunate to be accepted to Johns Hopkins University's aqueous geochemistry program where I studied water-rock interactions for an additional 2 years. At the conclusion of my Masters Degree in Geochemistry, I knew I needed more time outside and less in the lab and so moved back out west. It was in Oregon where sharing my love of the natural world with others took over and I have been involved in education either indoors or out ever since!
In order to better serve the students with whom I am privileged to work, I have since earned a Masters in Teaching from Western Oregon University and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies from St Joseph's College of Maine.

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less. ― Marie Curie
Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science. - Edwin Powell Hubble
