I have been at Briar Cliff College since the fall of 1988. Besides teaching, I advise the Briar Cliff Science Club, serving as a resource person for science fair projects and judging science fairs. I am also resident scientist for Chautauqua In-service workshop for improving teaching of science. Also, I am a strong supporter of women's athletics at Briar Cliff. Activities which I enjoy away from campus include enjoying and photographing nature and my furry (cat) family members.
