In 2005 I was hired by the Monte Vista School District to teach middle school science (7th grade), where I spent 9 excellent and memorable years. I transferred to the high school in the fall of 2014, where I serve as the Freshman Sponsor, Knowledge Bowl coach, and Science Fair Coordinator. I am currently teaching Biology, Ecology, Science Seminar, Anatomy/Physiology and AP Biology. I have an extensive background in wildlife biology, physiology, and resource management, and have continued to work for and collaborate with several state and federal agencies since 1990. I also serve as a board member for the Friends of the Dunes, a non-profit that supports research and education at the Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve. I am also very involved with the San Luis Valley Regional Science Fair, serving as a Scientific Review Committee member, and a volunteer at the Colorado and International Science and Engineering Fairs.
One of my great passions is research, whether it be simple or complex, and I love guiding students along their journeys to become student researchers, and hopefully, future professional scientists. In summers I work for the BLM as a biologist, monitoring and collecting wildlife and habitat data on our extensive public land resources. I also enjoy playing in the outdoors with activities such as photography, fly fishing, backpacking, and taking my dogs out for hikes whenever I get the chance.
My favorite color (of course) is GREEN!! Go Pirates!
