EHS Science Mission Statement: Provide an active learning environment which enables students to think, solve problems, and communicate like a scientist.


I come to Evergreen High School with 15 years of  professional expertise delivering, managing, developing, and evaluating high quality education programs, preceded by 8 years broad professional background in ecology, habitat restoration, wildlife research and conservation.  

As a scientist, I strive for continued personal growth through the observation and study of our natural environment.  As a teacher, I aspire to relate science, and its breadth and significance, to the everyday lives and futures of my students.  My philosophy as educator is to play the role of mentor, or co-conspirator, leading by example through curiosity, respect, admiration, exploration, collaboration, observation and appreciation.

When not engaged in science education, I can be found in the mountains, in the desert, on the water, in the garden, or experimenting in my kitchen.  I enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, rafting, biking, paddleboarding, yoga and frequently heading out on  adventures with my family.
