  • Biography

    I am an ecologist with interests in community and landscape level phenomena, particularly as they apply to conservation and management of amphibians and reptiles.  I obtained my degrees from Michigan State University (M.S., 1999; Ph.D, 2004), and I have been teaching in the Biology Department of Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Coon Rapids, MN (suburb of Minneapolis) since 2003.  I teach a wide variety of courses, including courses for non-majors (Unifying Concepts of Biology, Medical Terminology, Environmental Science, Field Biology), and majors (Principles of Biology I and II, General Ecology, Directed Research).  In the last few years, we have been working on infusing undergraduate research into the community college setting, and I have been working to build a research program and mentor first and second year undergraduates in projects in the areas of amphibian landscape ecology, aquatic ecology, and turtle population ecology, as well as collaborating with faculty in other disciplines to increase the undergraduate research opportunities throughout our college and programs.
