This is my tenth year teaching at Lumen Christi Catholic High School. Born and raised outside of Annapolis, MD, I received a B.S. in Biology from the University of Vermont in 2004 and an M.A. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2007. Since receiving my masters, I’ve worked in the private school setting teaching a variety of science and math classes. During my summers in Colorado I worked in the environmental consulting industry, which brought me to Alaska in the summer of 2008 for baseline work at a mining exploration project. In 2010, I relocated to Alaska and joined the amazing community at Lumen Christi. I continue to be involved in remote environmental research and currently work on an National Science Foundation funded “Earthscope” project that installs remote seismic detectors across the state of Alaska.
As a teacher, I strive to meet each student at their level and create a dynamic classroom that engages all levels and styles of learners.
In my spare time I enjoy running, hiking, skiing, camping and traveling with my husband and dog. My husband and I recently completed the Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile pilgrimage hike that begins in the western Pyrenees Mountains and traverses through central Spain to Santiago.
