As Director of the Adult Role Models in Science (ARMS) program, I work to engage scientists in reaching out to the community, and I work to engage youth and adults in the process of science. I have been with WISCIENCE at UW-Madison for more than 25 years, and I have also worked as an elementary and middle school teacher, an environmental educator with the Wis. Dept. of Natural Resources, and an adjunct faculty member with University of Wisconsin Stevens Point.

Most of my work has focused on the Madison community, building long-term partnerships between the university, local K-12 schools and organizations that serve youth. I have also led environmental science courses for teachers in Puerto Rico, led university students on a study-abroad course in rural Ecuador, and spent a year as the environmental education coordinator at the Cloud Forest School in Monteverde, Costa Rica. 

I received my MS in Land Resources from UW Madison Institute for Environmental Studies (now the Nelson Institute).
