When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
— John Muir

I love my job.  I am a forever student myself.  I quite possibly learn more from the community than they do from me. Working at Northwestern University has been an amazing opportunity to expand how and what I learn.

When I’m not working, you might see me riding about town on my scooter (meep meep), on my bike getting coffee, or lollygaggin at the dog park with a couple of furry nerds.

Having lived in Chicago for over two decades, I will never tire of the endless culinary and cultural options here in the windy city.  I hear the architecture is "pretty good" too.  As much as I love this city, camping is a must for me to balance out the hustle and bustle.  


I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Loyola University Chicago and a Master of Education in Teaching and Learning from DePaul University Chicago. I’m expected to complete my second Master of Arts in Educational Technology from Michigan State University in Spring 2019!

As a young girl interested in science with very little opportunity to experience science in school, I knew that I wanted to teach science to kids to make sure they had the opportunity to explore how science works.

I have been very fortunate in my career to have mentors and experiences that helped form my pedagogy. It’s what drives me to want to give back to others.
