I am a lifelong learner with a passion for teaching science and technology. My second passion is cooking and understanding the science behind the process. I loved playing school as a child and this interest led me to become a sixth grade public school teacher in California.
I moved from the classroom to the stars when we moved our family to Nashville, Tennessee in 1991. I became an astronomy and space science educator at Adventure Science Center and eventually the Senior Science Educator. My love of hands-on interactive inquiry-based teaching continues today. Nothing gives me more joy than watching children turn curiosity into an exploration that results in a real-world application of science and technology. Their excitement about what they discover challenges me to see the world as an opportunity to NEVER stop learning!
