I currently work at HHMI BioInteractive in outreach and content development. My focus at HHMI is to improve science education in undergraduate introductory biology courses.
Prior to joining HHMI BioInteractive, I was an educator for over 10 years in both the high school and community college settings. I have taught and developed curriculum in informal as well as formal educational settings and instructed biology and earth science courses for students ranging from elementary through college level. Before teaching, I managed a research lab in the cardiology department at the University of Pittsburgh for five years.
Outside of school and work, my focus is on my family! I have three kids: Julianne (Jules), Madeline (Maddie), and Kyle. My husband, Steve, teaches science and allows me to keep a crazy schedule. The five of us keep busy with karate, field hockey, wrestling, other kid-friendly stuff and we love to travel.
