I began as a banana slug at UC Santa Cruz. What a beautiful place!
Then I came to UCLA and brought good luck as we won the national basketball title and beat USC 9 years in a row! I graduated with a bachelors of science in psychobiology and decided science teaching would be my profession.
So I traveled up North to Stanford where I earned my masters degree and teaching credential.
Since then I have been at several different high schools, got married (Stanford Memorial Chapel picture above), and had children. I love the outdoors, hiking, and continuously learning about science in the world around us. Currently I am working with UCLA and UCSB on a nanoscience education that you will learn more about this year.
